According to the lawsuit, Wallace incurred brain injuries as a result of having consumed the cantaloupe in August 2011, and was immediately taken to an Albuquerque emergency room after suffering a stroke on Sept. 7, 2011. Wallace then had to have a feeding tube inserted into his body and undergo an array of tests, after which he was transferred to a rehabilitation center where his health continued to deteriorate. According to his attorney, Wallace was living a healthy life except for momentary rheumatoid arthritis attacks since 2006, but is now suffering from short-term memory loss.
