Georgetown Toxic Food Products and Containers Lawyers

When you buy a can of soup at the market or a burger at a local diner, you expect that the food is safe to eat. We wonder about cost, quality, nutrition, and taste when we purchase our food items, but we do not typically pause to ask whether our food is going to make us seriously ill. We simply assume that the products are not toxic, poisonous, or harmful. Tragically, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 48 million people every year get sick from foodborne diseases in the United States. About 3,000 people even die due to unsafe food.

At Evans Moore, LLC, we believe that all parties involved in food production and sales—from farmers to grocery store cashiers—have a responsibility to ensure food safety. Innocent consumers can suffer greatly when food-related businesses provide unsafe products. Precisely because toxic or poisonous food can cause such terrible health problems, the law requires companies to strictly follow safety guidelines. If they don’t, and you have been hurt as a consequence, our team of toxic food products and containers lawyers can help you seek financial compensation.

Common Causes of Food-Related Illness

Foods have quite a long journey to get from their source to your table and can become compromised at any stage. Farmers who grow grains and vegetables, along with ranchers and other meat producers, are responsible for generating foods free of dangerous levels of pesticides and disease. Shipping companies are expected to handle foods with care. Market employees and chefs alike are accountable for providing fresh foods that are safe for consumption.

When companies or individuals neglect food safety, they can cause or contribute to widespread illness. Some common causes of preventable food-related illness include:

  • Mold
  • Dangerous viruses and bacteria
  • Parasites
  • Mislabeled food products
  • Botulism
  • Toxic food containers
  • Unsafe chemicals, poisons, and pesticides

An unsuspecting consumer who eats foods with any one of these problems can become seriously ill. Their resulting condition might lead to high medical bills and work wages lost to recovery time.

After having the door shut in my face, countless times I met with James and Scott, who agreed to take the case to see what he could do. Each time , throughout the process I called the office, no matter who I spoke to or why I called, everyone made me feel like a valued client.
