Food Poisoning

Information About Foodborne Illness

Food poisoning affects a person who has consumed food that possesses some kind of bacteria or other pathogens, such as a virus or parasite that is harmful to human beings. The symptoms of food poisoning may include fever, upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, headaches, and dehydration. It affects approximately 75 million people in the United States ever year, and 5,000 of those cases end up being fatal to the victim.

Restaurants and other purveyors of food, such as grocery stores, are responsible for ensuring that the food they sell is safe to be consumed and free of bacteria. In the event that someone is made ill from food poisoning, then these establishments could be held liable for the victim's medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. The same is true of large companies that produce, package and sell food to restaurants and grocery stores.
