Viral and bacterial contamination of food products is very concerning to the public safety. Recently we have heard reports of several individuals in Mississippi and Alabama becoming very ill or dying as a result of the presence of bacteria in their food.
Our firm is currently investing a specific food poisoning incident in East Mississippi and West Alabama including the following counties in Mississippi (Neshoba, Kemper, Newton, Lauderdale, Jasper and Clake) and in Alabama (Choctaw, Sumter, Greene, Hale, Marengo, Clarke and Washington Counties). This investigation includes incidences of contamination with salmonella or incidence of salmonellosis in Chicken believed to purchased at A&P grocery stores in these areas.
Food poisoning effects 1 in 6 Americans each year. Of this number roughly 130,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. In fact, food poisoning is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, and here in Mississippi things apparently aren’t any different.
Any time someone becomes ill or dies as a result of food poisoning at a gathering, at home or the restaurant there are questions raised that deserve an answer. Part of our job as attorneys who take personal injury cases and products liability cases is attempting to give family members peace of mind when a loved one is injured or dies as a result of food poisoning or some other negligent preparation or handling of food.
