Dangerous Food Products

The supermarket shelves are filled with new food items all the time. As a consumer, you expect that those products are safe and fresh when they are purchased. Unfortunately, people are injured or sickened by dangerous products every day in Charleston and across the country.

If you have been injured by a dangerous food product or have suffered an illness caused by bad food, legal action is often the only way to seek justice.

CAUSES OF DANGEROUS FOOD PRODUCTS

There are many ways that a food may become dangerous. Among the causes are:

  • Defective Packaging: Improper packaging can leave food to spoil without your knowledge. Dented cans, open packages, and jars with failed seals are common problems that can make consumers sick. Sometimes defective packaging results from poor design or manufacturing problems.

    Sometimes people can be injured by defective packaging when they are cut on sharp edges. Defective packaging may pose suffocation or choking risks. Materials used in food packaging may leach chemicals that can contaminate the food.

  • Improper Processing: Processing during manufacture is another common failure for food safety. When foods are improperly processed, they can be contaminated by harmful bacteria or chemicals.
  • Dangerous Ingredients: Products sold as dietary supplements are not required to undergo the same level of scrutiny that drugs are. Some processed foods and dietary supplements may contain ingredients that cause serious adverse effects because they do not have to be tested before going on the market.
  • Pathogens: Food poisoning from pathogens is the most common cause of food-related illnesses. Outbreaks of Listeria, E. coli, Botulism, Norovirus, Salmonella, and others have caused widespread recalls on a regular basis.
  • Allergens:  For people with severe food allergies, unmarked foods can be deadly. Undeclared allergens like nuts, soy and milk can have deadly consequences for those with food allergies.
