What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Product Liability Lawyer: Food Products/Containers

The consumption of food that has spoiled or contains toxins such as salmonella or dangerous chemicals can create serious health risks, especially for young children. All too often people are exposed to these risks because a manufacturing, packaging, or shipping made a basic mistake.

Jacksonville defective food product attorney Don Guthrie cares about winning justice for victims of dangerous food products. Contact him today at 904-296-1088.

Dangerous Foods

When a company that produces packaged food fails to properly oversee the production, packaging, and distribution of its products, the results can be:

  • Contraction of e. coli, salmonella, or other serious diseases
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals such as lead or mercury
  • Side effects from a recently developed coloring, preservative, or other chemical

Dangerous Containers

Sometimes the problem does not lie with the food itself, but with the way it was packaged. The US has strict legal regulations of food packaging, but mistakes and oversights are often made. The outcomes of these mistakes can be:

  • Food poisoning caused by spoilage
  • Accidental consumption of an allergen caused by poor product labeling
  • Dangerous chemicals that are released in a microwave or dishwasher

If You Have Been Injured by a Defective Food Product

If you or a loved one has become ill due to a defective food product or container, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. This would allow you to recoup the money lost to time off work and medical bills, and may win you compensation for your pain and suffering.

There is a statute of limitations for filing a suit, so you need to act quickly. Contact the offices of Jacksonville defective product lawyer Don Guthrie at 904-296-1088 today.
