Food poisoning occurs when people consume food containing harmful bacteria, parasites, viruses, or toxic chemicals. The symptoms can vary widely, from short-lasting nausea and gastrointestinal problems to life-threatening medical emergencies. Food poisoning is almost always preventable with knowledge and foresight, yet continues to be a very common problem across South Carolina and the US.

HOW ERRORS LEAD TO ILLNESS
Any company that manufacturers, ships, prepares, or sells food and related products needs to be aware of the dangers of food poisoning. It is their responsibility to protect consumers from bacteria and other toxins in the products they buy. Unfortunately, there are many different mistakes food industry workers can make that may have severe consequences for consumers.
You may want to speak with a Charleston food poisoning attorney about filing a legal claim if you have suffered from a mistake like:
Restaurants or stores selling food past its expiration date
Food containers made with lead or other hazardous materials
