Foreign Objects in Food Products and Dangerous Food Products
Injuries often times can occur from foreign objects in food products as well as certain food products being dangerous. Sometimes the object actually is not so foreign. For example, a piece of bone in hamburger meat or a chicken bone in a chicken tender. However, sometimes the object is one that a person would not anticipate. Recently, a woman in Michigan discovered a black widow spider in her grapes. Fortunately, The spider did not bite her. Also some products actually can become dangerous. For example, carbonated beverages when they are subject to extreme cold or heat can actually explode.
When injuries happen from dangerous food products or foreign objects into product, it is essential to preserve the evidence immediately. Examples of such cases handled by Locke & Quinn and the Women’s Injury Law Center include:
- A piece of glass swallowed by a client when drinking from a soda can.
- A dead mouse found at the bottom of a potato chip bag.
- A used Band-Aid found in a sandwich purchased from a fast food restaurant.
- A soda bottle that exploded when left out on the carport causing blindness in one eye.
