In recent weeks, there have been four separate listeria recalls announced to the public by different companies that produce the food that we eat. These listeria recall issues have centered on:
If you have purchased any of these products, please make sure to check to see if you have any that have been affected by a recent listeria recall in your home or office. If so, do not consume any of these foods and pursue a refund for those purchases.
Fortunately, to date there have been no reports of people becoming ill as a result of eating food that was contaminated with listeria bacteria. Exposure to listeria bacteria can lead to a level of food poisoning that is nothing short of miserable for some people and even potentially fatal for others such as small children and those who already suffer from compromised immune systems. If you have consumed any of these foods and you are feeling at all unwell, you need to seek medical attention as soon as possible, particularly if you are pregnant, as pregnant women are also extremely vulnerable to listeria bacteria exposure.
If you or someone you love has been harmed as a result of any of these listeria recalls or because you’ve suffered food poisoning for some other reason, contact the attorneys at the Gomez Trial Attorneys today to schedule a free initial consultation so that you can have your legal rights and options thoroughly analyzed and explained.

Food Poisoning is a serious, life-threatening problem, which has become an epidemic in the United States. Food poisoning can affect one person or it can occur as an outbreak in a group of people who all ate the same contaminated food. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that there are 76 million cases of food poisoning in the United States each year. Of these cases, approximately 300,000 people will be hospitalized and 5,000 people will die. Infants and elderly people have the greatest risk for food poisoning. You are also at higher risk if you have a serious medical condition, like kidney disease or diabetes, a weakened immune system, or you travel outside of the U.S. to areas where there is more exposure to organisms that cause food poisoning. Pregnant and breastfeeding women have to be especially careful.
