Food poisoning could lead to a product liability case

If you get food poisoning, it can be horrible. You could spend days feeling sick, you could miss work, and you may even need medical attention, depending on how bad things are. When it's all said and done, don't just chalk it up to bad luck and hope it doesn't happen again. You may have a product liability case on your hands.

Like all other companies, food producers have an obligation to sell food that is safe and healthy. Consumers have a right not to worry about getting sick, and they should not be penalized for losses--medical costs or lost wages, for instance--during this time. The company can't put out a product that is a risk.

Common reasons for food poisoning include the following:

-- The food prep is done by a person who has not cleaned his or her hands properly.-- The prep is done with cooking utensils that are unclean.-- Meat in the food is raw or undercooked.-- Food is stored at too high of a temperature.-- And more.

There is also the issue of contaminated food, which often sparks a recall. Companies may find out that a certain type of packaged food carries a risk of salmonella poisoning, for example. Even if all of the above steps are followed, this could be an issue, and companies cannot then keep selling the food once they know that there is a problem. This is just one example, but there are many types of contamination that lead to serious sickness.
