As an Orangeburg personal injury lawyer , I urge consumers to practice safe cooking methods to ensure any lingering bacteria is killed. Consumers should also be wary of cross contamination from produce. Bacteria can cause food poisoning that could be fatal.
While we don't handle food recalls we feel that it's important to educate the community to help protect their health and safety. If you have been injured by tainted food, you might wish to contact an Orangeburg personal injury lawyer who can help.
