Food poisoning can occur when a food manufacturer, distributor or restaurant doesn’t take the proper precautions to ensure their product is fresh and free of bacteria or diseases. It can affect one person or occur as an outbreak in a group of people who all ate the same contaminated food.
Although it may not initially seem like a big deal, food poisoning can have severe effects. It’s important to hold individuals responsible for unsafe food handling practices and for the injury or illness that they have caused. At Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A., our firm can effectively investigate the circumstances surrounding your illness and fight for the compensation you are due. In many cases, you are not the only one that has been affected, and it is important to get to the source of the problem.

Bacteria Causing Food Poisoning
Food poisoning tends to occur at picnics, school cafeterias, and large social functions. In these cases, food may be left out of the refrigerator too long or food preparation techniques may not be clean. Food poisoning often occurs from eating undercooked meats, dairy products, or food containing mayonnaise (like coleslaw or potato salad) that have sat out of the refrigerator too long.
Food Poisoning Can Be Caused By:
- Bacillus cereus
- E. coli enteritis
- Fish poisoning
- Mushroom poisoning
- Staphylococcus aureus
