It is easy to assume that food, water and shelter can only be good things since they are essential staples that we need to survive.
Food poisoning serves the reminder that what's served on your plate can actually be quite harmful to your body and your health.
In many cases, Alabama food poisoning victims have legal remedies available to compensate them for their injuries as a result of being poisoned by consumed food.
In the extreme, food poisoning can be a life-threatening issue, and the CDC states that 3,000 Americans died as a result of food poisoning in 2014. An additional 128,000 were hospitalized, and 1 in 6 Americans experienced some sort of food poisoning in 2014. The numbers bear out the fact that food poisoning is a serious issue, and it is made all the more serious when an individual's negligence causes the danger.
The law has a vested interested in food safety since it plays an incredibly significant role for overall public health. For this reason, Alabama and federal law establishes food poisoning guidelines that help food poisoning victims hold negligent individuals accountable for their actions.
Negligent farmers, food sellers, food servers and food preparers can all be held liable for their negligent actions.
