Jane Majeska says she was hospitalized and put on a tube and ventilator after eating Dole spinach three years ago.

The E. coli outbreak killed three people, made 200 sick and cost the industry about $80 million in lost sales.

Majeska's suit asks for unspecified damages from Dole, Pick 'n' Save markets and two other companies.
