Kankakee Food Product and Container Attorneys
The nutrition that we get from food is something that many people take for granted. Though the quality may vary, we expect that our food is safe to consume. This sense is created by the strict screenings and standards that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has in place. When everything is working as it is intended, the FDA is able to keep dangerous food products and containers from ever hitting the market. Regrettably, however, there are frequently instances in which the screening process fails to identify problems and the public may be exposed to significant health risks.
If you or your loved one has been sickened after consuming tainted food or food which was sold in unsafe containers, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate. To learn more about your legal rights in this situation, contact the Kankakee food product and container lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C., by calling (815) 929-9292 today.
Food Safety Concerns
Often major food recalls and concerns are made known on news programs and other media. The trouble is that recalls take time to go into wide effect, and many times people are hurt before a product is known to be dangerous. Moreover, there are hundreds of recalls each year which occur quietly, away from the eye of the media. When a product is not packaged correctly or it is produced poorly, the following types of hazards can manifest:
- E. coli
- Spoiled food
- Chemical contamination
- Pesticide contamination
These dangers can cause severe, potentially life-threatening illnesses. You should not be asked to bear the burden of medical bills and other problems attributable to the negligence of producers, freight companies, or retailers.
Do not delay seeking legal advice if you have been harmed by a tainted food product. Contact the Kankakee food product and container attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., at (815) 929-9292.
