Zeeland - A lawyer has raised allegations about unclean conditions at Bil Mar Food’s plant in this western Michigan community in a wrongful death lawsuit filed on behalf of a Tennessee woman.

Tainted meat from the Bil Mar plant has killed 12 people in 16 states and sickened 79 others, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Bil Mar, a division of Chicago-based Sara Lee Corp., on Dec. 22 recalled 15 million pounds of hot dogs and other packaged meat products sold under a variety of names. It said they could be tainted with listeria bacteria.

On Tuesday, Chicago lawyer Kenneth Moll filed the suithis secondsaying he interviewed former Bil Mar employees who talked about unsanitary conditions at the plant and faulty cooking processes.

This kind of conduct shouldn’t be acceptable,Moll said.
