San Diego Food Recall Lawyers

Every year, hundreds of food products and pet food products are pulled from the shelves of stores and warehouses because they are contaminated, unsafe, or have other dangerous risks. This makes it increasingly difficult to trust the food that we purchase for our loved ones and ourselves from companies we have been loyal to for years. In the case of a food recall, it is the responsibility of the manufacturing company to absorb all costs of the recall, including informing the public, recalling the product, and paying for any damages.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of a contaminated food product, contact an experienced food recall attorney immediately. Our San Diego expert food recall attorneys understand that companies will bend over backward to protect their brand name and reputation from being tainted. If you have a case, we will protect your rights and get you the money damages you need.

San Diego Lawsuit Brings Attention to Food Contamination

Last week, a man diagnosed with hepatitis A filed a lawsuit against a La Mesa Chipotle restaurant.

The man, Terry Wesley, claims that he became sick on April 24 after eating at the Chipotle restaurant and remains sick to this day.

The lawsuit was filed just as San Diego County health officials reported another hepatitis A case that officials believe may also be linked to the La Mesa restaurant. If that is the case, officials have documented 21 people sickened by food contamination at the restaurant between March 1 and April 22.

Food contamination is a serious problem, particularly common among fast food restaurants and any other restaurant where health preparations are sacrificed in the name of speed and profit. Hepatitis A is a particularly serious disease that attacks the liver and is spread by contamination of food or water through fecal matter.

If you have suffered from food poisoning and incurred a serious infection, such as hepatitis A, please contact us for a free initial consultation. Not only are you entitled to compensation, but your claim draws attention to the poor sanitary conditions at the violating restaurant.

San Diego Salmonella Food Poisoning Tied to Unlicensed Texas Plant

San Diego residents suffering from food poisoning due to salmonella in their peanut butter products appear to be the victim of a Texas processing plant that went unlicensed and uninspected for years.

The Plainview, Texas plant for Peanut Corporation of America was never inspected until it came under investigation by the FDA.
Inspectors have not found any trace of salmonella at the plant but have determined that the plant had been operating without a license and without inspection for years.

Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence. The company’s sister plant in Blakely, Georgia revealed roaches, mold, and numerous positive tests for salmonella.

We hope that federal and state health inspectors do their job now that this outbreak has spread nationwide and shut these plants and Peanut Corporation of America down. If you have been exposed to salmonella food poisoning, please immediately go see a doctor and receive urgent health care. Our office is available at any time after you’ve received health care. Please contact us and speak to a lawyer about your food poisoning injury.
