Food Poisoning Lawsuits

How Foodborne Illnesses Occur

Pathogens are common in most foods, but proper cleaning and cooking practices are intended to get rid of most of these and make the end product safe to eat. Patrons and customers can develop serious, painful illnesses when restaurant staff members do not follow appropriate safety protocol and prescribed food preparation standards.

You can get food poisoning from virtually any kind of meat. Milk, yogurt, and other dairy products also carry around their fair share of contaminants, and the same is true of eggs, water, and any other foods that possibly have been contaminated by fecal matter during its production.

Symptoms of Food Poisoning

You may have eaten contaminated food if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Diarrhea

  • Vomiting

  • Stomach pain

  • Severe cramps

  • General lethargy and weakness

  • Migraines and headaches

  • Fever

  • Blood in your urine or stool

Common forms of food poisoning include:

  • Campylobacter enteritis (Typically comes from improperly cooked meat or contaminated veggies, water, or dairy products);

  • E. Coli virus (Typically comes from green, leafy vegetables and beef products that have not been subject to proper cleaning);

  • Salmonella (Can come from a wide variety of food sources that may have been contaminated by soil);

  • Listeria (Typically comes from fruit and dairy products and is common among people with weak or compromised immune systems);

  • Hepatitis A (Also called “Hep A,” typically occurs because of ingesting fecal matter); and

  • Norovirus (Can come through drinks, meat, fruit, vegetables, and virtually any other source).
