You go to your local Western New York market, buy food for your family and expect it to be safe to eat. It’s that simple. But thousands are poisoned every year by E. coli – bacteria that can cause serious, sometimes fatal, infections in humans. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that E. coli causes 2,000 hospitalizations in the United States each year.
E. coli poisoning can occur when contaminated food is improperly cooked. This includes hamburgers, spinach, raw milk, water, and other foods. It can cause Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) which may lead to kidney failure, blindness, and even death.
We have significant experience in food-poisoning cases involving local restaurants, large national corporations and food brokers. Food poisoning cases are difficult. That’s why we consult with top local and national experts to give our clients the best chance for success.
