Every year, thousands of Americans are sickened by unsanitary, tainted, and dangerous food products. Many cases of food-borne illness or food poisoning are the result of unsafe and unsanitary practices in the preparation, storage, and shipping of food from processing plants to the restaurants and stores where we purchase it. Consumers rely on the food distributors and preparers to make sure that the products being provided to us are safe and wholesome.
When there are deficient food handling and food preparation processes, consumers can become ill from things such as e-coli, salmonella, norovirus, listeria, or shigella. While many cases of food borne illness or food poisoning result in short-term illness, some cases result in serious permanent injuries, such as kidney failure, or death.
We work with local public health authorities to identify the source of the food borne and to hold those accountable for the injuries they cause.
