Food recalls increasing

Miami consumers believe the food they eat will be safe. Food supply in the United States is usually safe, but a new report shows that bacteria-related food recalls is increasing.

In 2017, there was the largest number of food and beverage recalls in the United States in five years. Food products recalled by the FDA rose over 92 percent since 2012 and the Department of Agriculture recalled more than 83 percent more food in the same time period. The main two causes of the recalls include bacterial infections and undeclared allergens.

Food recalls can often be very serious. A food-born illness can make someone very sick or they can even die. An undeclared allergen can be a life or death situation for many people. Those who have suffered as the result of a food recall may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in products liability. An attorney understands the hardship a family may go through because of an unsafe product. There may be unexpected medical bills that are continuing to rise, along with emotional trauma. An attorney is committed to having these products removed from the market so that others are not injured. They understand the suffering their client has experienced and work hard to make sure the food company is held liable for their mistakes. Putting people's lives at risk is not OK.

Those who have been affected by a food or product recall may have legal rights. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.
