Dangerous Foods

Food poisoning (also called “ food-borne illness”) is caused by consuming foods contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, or other toxins. While FDA regulations and recalls are meant to prevent tainted foods from reaching consumers, sometimes dangerous foods slip through the cracks and make their way onto our tables. In turn, injuries caused by food-borne illnesses are one of the most common forms of personal injury claims. This section provides information on different sources and types of food poisoning, including E. coli, Listeria, Norovirus, and Salmonella. In addition, you'll find tips on preventing food poisoning, federal government resources on food safety, and much more.
