Illness-Causing Food Products and Containers

We have little choice but to trust the food products and containers that we use on a daily basis. But, unfortunately, this trust is misplaced, as the food products or containers that we eat or use are all too often contaminated. This contamination can come from a number of sources and, sadly, can cause severe illnesses or physical harm.

The attorneys at Yearout & Taylor, P.C.  know the damage that Birmingham residents can sustain due to contaminated food products and containers. Fortunately, though, victims can usually take action against the negligent manufacturer or distributor responsible for the contamination, getting much-needed compensation.

Most Common Problems that Cause Illness

Food products and containers can become contaminated in a variety of ways and due to a variety of substances. However, the following are among the more common problems that cause illness for innocent consumers:

  • Salmonella
  • E. Coli
  • Contaminated Food
  • Defective Containers
  • Toxic Containers

These problems can cause terrible physical complaints, such as vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, weight loss, and fatigue. Additionally, you might be plagued with related financial burdens, like the medical costs required to treat your illness. However, you do not necessarily have to face these burdens alone.
