According to the latest statistics, 76 Californians have become ill from the outbreak of salmonella bacteria recently found in some peanut butter and peanut butter products. Nationally, more than 630 people became ill from infections caused by the outbreak, the CDC says. Although nine people have died there have been no deaths reported in California thus far.

When a company negligently contaminates the food supply, and particularly if they knowingly do so there can be significant liability for resulting sickness and injury. An experienced and aggressive attorney will be able to conduct the necessary investigation and discovery to uncover the root causes of the contamination, as well as who knew what, and when.

The firm Berman & Riedel, LLP specializes in the civil litigation of serious personal injury claims, including those caused by defective products and contaminated food poisoning. If you are one of the Californians suffering from this outbreak contact attorney William Berman for a consultation. Mr. Paré can be reached at (858) 350-8855.
