Reporter: Bad news from Sara Lee has prompted a nationwide class-action lawsuit. The meat contained a bacteria called lysteria. Several dozen people were infected with it. A week and a half ago Sara Lee voluntarily recalled more than $50 million worth of hotdogs and other meat products. The attorney filing the suit says there could still be more people out there who got sick because of the meat.

Ken Moll: There's still people out there that either don't know they have the lysteria bacteria or they haven't consumed the product yet, and they may in the future.

Reporter: The class-action lawsuit also names meat products by Bil Mar. Those products were recalled last September.
