Dangerous Foods

In the United States, we have become so used to purchasing food and drinks from stores and restaurants that we simply expect the products that we consume to be completely safe. Though the United States Food and Drug Administration and other state and federal agencies generally do an exceptional job in monitoring the safety of the food supply and penalizing the companies who endanger public health, every year there are thousands who become seriously ill due to contaminated or improperly prepared food. In the most severe cases, medical attention and hospitalization may be necessary. Tragically, some food poisoning episodes even prove fatal.

If you have been sickened by tainted food, then it may be possible to gain financial compensation for your illness by filing a lawsuit against the responsible parties.

Different Food Dangers

Most people are aware of some basic safety precautions that can be taken with food prepared in the home, such as cleaning all fresh produce and ensuring that meats are cooked to certain minimum internal temperatures. But these measures may be inadequate and people are often ill-informed about what the specific dangers associated with contaminated food actually are. Some of the different food dangers that one may encounter are:

  • Salmonella
  • Escherichia coli
  • Campylobacter
  • Norwalk-like viruses
  • Shigella
  • Listeria
  • Botulism
