Food Contamination

Due at least in part to changes in the nation’s agricultural system, the risk of food contamination has drawn increased attention in recent years. Whereas it was once the case that virtually all of a family’s food would be produced by their own work or by a trusted local provider, now there are corporate farms with distribution centers and food manufacturers separating food from the marketplace. Missteps along the way can result in contaminated food which endangers the health and safety of consumers.

The illnesses that arise due to dangerous food and beverages can require expensive medical treatment and may even necessitate hospitalization. A successful lawsuit can help you recover financial compensation to address those costs and other damages.

Contaminated Food Dangers

There are many different ways in which food can become contaminated, and it is the responsibility of the companies involved in the manufacture, transport, and sale of a product to ensure that they do not expose consumers to needless risk. Some cases of contamination are accidental and others are intentional, but virtually all are preventable before they reach the public. Contaminated food may cause serious illness or death, and may arise due to:

  • Unsecured Containers
  • Insufficiently Cleaned Production Facilities
  • Pesticides
  • Contaminated Ingredients
  • Malfunctioning Refrigeration
