Food Borne Illness
Unfortunately, clients in the food service industry occasionally encounter food borne illness. When this occurs, a variety of problems surface, including serious health concerns for the client’s patrons, the potential for adverse media exposure, and financial repercussions for the client due to a loss of business because of the public’s concern regarding the food borne illness. LMC has extensive experience in handling these problems when they arise and is equipped to defend the client as against any claims raised by any patrons, to recommend strategies for addressing negative media exposure, and to pursue any claims against third parties that might ultimately be found responsible for the contaminated food. The LMC team also understands the processes related to any investigation of the contamination by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and serves as a liaison for the client with the CDC to quickly and accurately identify the source of the contamination so as to prevent further exposures.
