Food Poisoning and Contamination

With over 20 years of experience lawyer David I. Fuchs has successfully represented food poisoning and contamination victims, their families and friends who have sustained and suffered serious bodily injuries because of the negligence of the manufacturer or seller of food items that are not fit for consumption.

Food contamination and the law

Under the US product liability system, consumers that contract illness due to food-borne pathogens may be eligible for monetary compensation. As an injured party, you can bring up suit against the manufacturers and producers of defective food products. If successful, that manufacturer will be responsible for:

  • medical costs
  • legal fees
  • damages
  • other costs

Firms may often incur additional penalties when found to be distributing products containing food born pathogens. Food producers of contaminated food products typically see an increase in legal fees, insurance costs, lost profits and lowered market share. When firms begin experiencing an increase in litigation or class action suits, it is very likely that they need to use this as an opportunity to increase their investment into food safety. Social welfare is taken very seriously and consumers are rapidly informed of potential dangers in any form of food stuff. With the rapid consumption of many food products, it is important for food safety to be taken seriously.

Types of food-borne pathogens

The most common offenders of pathogens which slip into the public food system include salmonella and hepatitis. These pathogens occur most commonly in:

  • fast food
  • sandwiches
  • seafood
  • chicken

Food safety a priority

Unfortunately, data regarding food contamination is lacking and the proper statistics are not kept to draw formal conclusions. Studies have been formed with the goal in mind to create incentives for large organizations and producers of food stuffs to make food contamination safety a top priority. By collecting data and recording the condition of their products consistently, the food safety administration can give progressive companies incentives to maintain clean products. In contrast, companies unwilling to cooperate often suffer negative consequences such as an increase in insurance and legal costs.
