Online PR News – 08-November-2012 – Philadelphia, PA – The Pennsylvania personal injury lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are dedicated to protecting consumers from dangerous products, and as such, feel it is important to discuss a recent food recall. Recently, Wegmans Food Markets announced a recall of its Organic Spinach and Spring Mix, which was available in stores throughout the northeast, including New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The recall comes in light of evidence that the product may have been contaminated with E. coli bacteria. As many as sixteen people have already experienced serious illness as a result of the Organic Spinach and Spring Mix, and a total of more than 31,000 pounds are currently being recalled.
Most customers expect the food they purchase in their local grocery stores to be safe for their consumption, particularly their produce. However, instances of food contaminated with bacteria such as salmonella and E. coli have become increasingly prominent in recent years, highlighting the fact that even with the food safety standards currently in place, many consumers are still at risk of being harmed by the products they purchase.
Fortunately, the incident of contamination of Wegmans Organic Spinach and Spring Mix appears to only have involved a single batch, meaning that the extent of consumer exposure is likely limited. Nevertheless, those who have suffered illness as a result of this product may experience serious consequences, particularly young children and the elderly. Fortunately, compensation may be available for those who have suffered injury or illness as a result of a damaged or dangerous product. The Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are prepared to offer help to any Pennsylvania resident who has suffered injury in this unfortunate situation.
