Harrisburg Food Liability Lawyer
The manufacturers and producers of consumer goods are legally responsible to ensure that consumers are not exposed to unnecessary injury or illness resulting from their products. There are some products, such as power tools, guns, and chemical cleaning solutions that come with an implicit and understood risk, even when they are made properly and accomplish what they are supposed to do. Apart from the risk of choking, food should not pose a danger to someone who is not allergic. Yet the massive recalls of tainted meats and other products underscore the pressing need for strict regulation of the food supply and food liability laws.

Common Problems with Food Products
When there are substantial recalls, the media is quick to pounce on the story, but the majority of these incidents actually go unnoticed by the media and the general public. When one gets ill, there is often a tendency to assume that it is an isolated incident and maybe the food just didn’t “agree” with his or her digestive system. However, that is rarely the case. Potential problems with food products include:
- Food poisoning
- E. coli contamination
- Salmonella contamination
- Inaccurate labeling of ingredients
- Improper packaging that causes food to spoil
Food is supposed to provide comfort and sustenance, not illness. If you or a family member has been stricken by an ailment caused by contaminated or otherwise defective food products, contact the Harrisburg food liability lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., at .
