The companies who manufacture and distribute the foods we consume each day have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the products they release to market. Any failure to do so could result in numerous individuals becoming seriously ill and, in the past, has led to legal action.
The Ohio Product Liability Lawyers with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain the same standards apply to online vendors who sell breast milk for infants; however, a recent study shows these products may be contaminated and could be putting many children’s safety at risk.
An article from WFMJ News told how researchers purchased and examined a total of 101 breast milk samples via the Internet. The team concluded roughly three-quarters of the samples were contaminated with dangerously high levels of the bacteria, Salmonella. Experts say the organism can cause those who are infected to suffer severe cramping, diarrhea, and vomiting. These symptoms can lead to dehydration and eventually, death.

The law firm’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers is aware of how risky contaminated food products can be and urges anyone who has been harmed by such a product to discuss their legal rights with an attorney.

Burned out semi-truck […]
Merging onto a highway or interstate is always a little stressful, even when traffic is light. That’s because you’re required to enter the roadway at a fast enough speed to keep up with other traffic, but you may have only a hundred feet to accelerate and reach that speed. And when traffic is heavy, there […]
When many people think of surgeons committing medical malpractice, they think of mistakes made during major operations like open-heart surgery, joint replacement, and organ transplantation. When surgeons make mistakes during these procedures, patients can develop serious and often fatal complications. However, there’s another type of surgery where major mistakes can happen that can also put […]
MRSA infections are one of the biggest risk factors of hospital stays, especially in people who had surgery or who are recovering from serious injuries and wounds. While they start as skin infections, they can quickly worsen and cause life-threatening infections in tissue, bones, and organs throughout the body. According to a 2020 study published […]
