As a Renton personal injury attorney, I’ve seen many similar food safety recalls in the past and I understand the difficulties that food and beverage manufacturers face when attempting to produce quality products for their customers. That said, I’ve also witnessed the injuries that can result from the consumption of a contaminated food product. If you’ve suffered an injury or fallen ill due to the consumption of a defective or contaminated food product, contact a personal injury lawyer in your city to learn more about your rights as a consumer.
