The proper decontamination, packaging, and labeling of food products is critical to protecting the safety of consumers who purchase and ingest any food item. The failure to comply with the clearly defined federal and state safety standards may result in significant illness or prolonged health issues. When a food product is mislabeled, for instance, the expiration date may be incorrect or allergens contained in the foods may not be properly labeled, either of which may severely affect some individuals who ingest those items. If you have become ill as the result of a toxic food product, it is advisable that you retain legal representation as early on in the legal process as possible.
Causes of Foodborne Illness
When food has become contaminated with bacteria, anyone who eats that contaminated food is at high risk of contracting a foodborne illness. Among the most commonly cited contributing factors of foodborne illness include:
- Improper storage of product before food is purchased

- Inadequate cleaning methods
- Poor packaging
