In the lawsuit, Leafty claims salads she served her son using Natural Selection spinach caused her son --- Brayden --- to become seriously ill in late August and early September of 2006.

As a result, Sheila says her son had to be taken to the hospital and treated.

The company denies the allegations. The trial is scheduled for March 7 of next year.
