 Minn. family sues Cargill after daughter sickened [12.23]

After a Twin Cities family sued Cargill over beef tailed with E.coli, the company is now asking for the lawsuit to be thrown out.

On Tuesday, the company denied any negligence and is asking for the case to be dismissed.

The Hemmingson family, of Mahtomedi, said their daughter, Ruth, spent a month at St. Paul Children's Hospital after the nine-year-old's organs began shutting down last May.

The family's current medical bills and future medical needs are expected to top $4 million, according to the lawsuit. The company and the family could not agree on a settlement.

Ruth was among four Minnesota children who got sick after eating American Chefs Brand frozen beef patties. 

The Minnesota company recalled 845,000 pounds of American Chefs frozen patties that could have been contaminated with E.coli in October 2007.
