The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that nearly one in six Americans is affected by foodborne illness every year, with more than 125,000 requiring hospitalization, and 3,000 cases resulting in death. Foodborne illness, or food poisoning, can strike quickly, and the source of the problem can often be difficult to pinpoint. Tomasik Kotin Kasserman has the experience and resources to identify the source(s) and parties responsible for the outbreak.
Two of the most common foodborne pathogens, Salmonella, and E. coli are often found in contaminated eggs, meat, poultry, cheese, milk, and raw fruits and vegetables. No matter what the source of contamination, however, the pathogens are easily spread to other foods, making them equally dangerous. The attorneys at Tomasik Kotin Kasserman stand up for those who have been made ill as the result of deficient food safety practices and are not afraid to hold even the largest companies and suppliers responsible for their negligence.
