PRESENT: SCUDDER, P.J., MARTOCHE, FAHEY, PERADOTTO, AND GREEN, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the order so appealed from is unanimously affirmed without costs.
Plaintiff commenced this action, individually and on behalf of his son, seeking damages for injuries sustained by his son when he ingested allegedly tainted ground beef sold by defendant. Contrary to the contention of defendant, Supreme Court properly denied its motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint. Even assuming, arguendo, that defendant met its initial burden on the motion, we conclude that plaintiff raised a triable issue of fact by submitting evidence establishing that his son suffered from E. coli poisoning as a result of ingesting ground beef sold by defendant(see generally Zuckerman v City of New York, 49 NY2d 557, 562).
