When your food makes you sick, we can help. Food poisoning happens when you eat food contaminated by a virus, bacteria, a naturally-occurring toxin, or a parasite.
Foodborne disease is silent, invisible, odorless, and can have devastating and long-lasting effects on health, particularly for the pregnant, elderly, children, and immune-compromised persons.
In recent years, we have seen severe and deadly outbreaks from meat, fruits, vegetables, fish and seafood, peanut butter, soy butter, ice-cream, raw cheese and raw milk. Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, Hepatitis A, Botulism, Campylobacter, Norovirus, Cyclospora, Shigella and Vibrio
We work to trace the source of the illness, and investigate whether the grower, processor or seller improperly processed, prepared, stored or handled your food using expertise in medicine, microbiology, epidemiology, sanitation, food safety, and agricultural practices.
The globalization of our food supply and distribution, a dependence on cheap labor and an underfunded safety system means that our food is making us sick more often. With the rise of global agriculture, cross-border legal issues are common. You need a lawyer who understands how to hold foreign companies that bring unsafe foods to our shores accountable under U.S. law, in U.S. courts. We have the knowledge and experience to make sure you have the full protection of US law.
