Food Contamination Can Cause Serious Injury – Even Death

Recalled Food

Every year different food products are recalled and removed from grocery stores and restaurants across the U.S. More than your average case of food poisoning, there are products that actually transmit what the Centers of Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) refer to as “Foodborne Illnesses.” There are over 250 different food diseases that range from infectious, bacterial and parasitic. Pathogens like E. Coli can be deadly or lead to permanent conditions such as hemolytic uremic syndrome which causes acute kidney failure in children.

The number of people who die each year of foodborne diseases is shocking. The CDC estimates that as many as 3,000 Americans die of food poisoning. For those who do survive, the medical costs are high. There are about 128,000 people a year who are hospitalized and financial losses can be huge depending on what health procedures they needed and how much time from work they missed.


Federal agencies like the CDC and other major departments that form the FoodNet track down food contamination outbreaks and pinpoint the places where companies used unsanitary practices. Once the source is discovered, a recall generally follows. An irresponsible company should be held accountable for their mistakes. If their actions caused people to be harmed, even killed than they should be brought to justice in the civil courts and cover the costs of the victims’ damages.

If you or someone in your family was seriously hurt as a result of something they ate, you should consider speaking to an attorney at our Texas Product Liability Law Firm. Our food recall attorneys are committed to holding irresponsible companies and persons accountable for their part in spreading disease.
