Chicago Toxic Food Product and Container Attorneys

When consumers eat food products, they place a great deal of trust in the companies that made them, but even a small amount of a toxic substance can lead to serious illness or even death. For this reason, food companies must take the utmost care to make sure that their products and the containers they come in are free of dangerous contaminants. Unfortunately, all too often, they fail to take this care, exposing consumers to deadly toxins. Usually, by the time the FDA issues a recall for these toxic products, many have already taken ill or died from eating them.

Food companies that allow toxic products and containers to reach the grocery store shelves endanger consumers and betray their trust. Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC believes companies should pay for the harm this negligence causes to people simply trying to eat. If you or someone you love has been hurt by a toxic food product or container, we will fight the company responsible and increase your chances of holding them financially accountable.

How Food Products Become Contaminated

From farms to factories to shelves, food products pass through a number of stages and locations before ever reaching your table. There are numerous opportunities for food to become contaminated, so it is imperative that every party involved observe strict food safety standards. Unfortunately, companies sometimes fail to do so. Here are some of the ways food companies can allow toxic substances to pass through at each stage of the process:

  • The ingredients: Sometimes the raw ingredients may have come from diseased animals or pesticide-ridden plants.
  • The production process: food is handled by several people and machines, putting it at risk for contamination each time.
  • Storage and transportation: companies must maintain the right conditions and standards for both storage and transportation

It may be difficult to pinpoint the exact moment at which the food product you consumed was exposed to toxic substances, but in any case, if it happened before you bought it, the company that produced it may be liable for the illness it caused you.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J. F.
