Foodborne Illnesses

Restaurants and food processing or packaging businesses put consumers at risk when they allow contaminated food into the marketplace.  Over the past several years, listeria, salmonella, and E. coli outbreaks have occurred with alarming frequency and those who suffer food poisoning or worse deserve to hold the responsible parties liable.

If you or your loved one suffered food poisoning or contracted a foodborne illness, contact a product liability attorney at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA to discuss your potential claims and remedies.  While listeria, salmonella, and E. coli are among the most well-known causes of foodborne illness, our attorneys can help if you are affected by any of the more than 200 foodborne illnesses recognized by the Center for Disease Control.

Dangerous Conditions Put Lives at Risk

Chief among the causes of food contamination is a lack of proper sanitation.  Failing to maintain a clean preparation, processing, or packaging environment leads to the growth and spread of bacteria, viruses, and toxins.  These invisible germs can lead to violent sickness, long-term health issues, and even death.

While any person who consumes contaminated food may develop a foodborne illness, certain individuals are more likely to suffer serious symptoms of food poisoning.  Those with at particular risk of suffering from foodborne illnesses are:

  • Small children
  • Older adults
  • Diabetics
  • Pregnant women
  • Immunocompromised individuals

If you or a family member suffered serious injury, illness, or loss of life after consuming contaminated food, call or e-mail our product liability law firm now to schedule a consultation.
