Wisconsin Food Poisoning Attorney
The Centers for Disease Control estimate
foodborne illnesses cause 76 million illnesses and result in 325,000 hospitalizations
and 5,000 deaths yearly in the United States.
While there are many food-training programs in place, sometimes the places
we trust to nourish our bodies and to handle our food and drinks with
the utmost care fail to exercise that care, leaving our food contaminated.
Many contaminants can accidentally be introduced to the food and drinks
we consume including:
Some very serious contaminations may result in lifelong medical problems.
Food and drinks may become contaminated with these or viruses in a number
of ways. Some meat and chicken can become contaminated with pathogens
found in feces or in intestinal contents of animals in the slaughterhouse
when proper care is not practiced.
Fruits and vegetables can become contaminated if sprayed or irrigated with
water contaminated with animal or human sewage. Those who work in the
food industry may contaminate food and beverages if they fail to practice
proper hygiene, fail to wear proper clothing, or prepare food when they are sick.
