Product recall of foods that could cause illness

When one goes to the grocery store in Ohio and purchases packaged, processed foods, one expects that the items will be safe to eat. One might check an expiration or sell-by date, but otherwise, the purchase is made with confidence that it is safe. A recent product recall by Ukrop's Homestyle Foods may give consumers a reason to take a second look at some purchases.

The company discovered that some products produced between Sept. 14, 2018 and Oct. 3, 2018 may be contaminated with the listeria bacteria. The company has issued a recall on many products that include turkey, bacon, chicken or beef. The products contain the marking of EST.19979 inside the USDA inspection mark. Ohio is among the states that received these products.

Listeria can cause a condition called listeriosis. Symptoms can include muscle aches, fever, gastrointestinal issues, headache, confusion and sometimes convulsions. The condition is particularly dangerous to pregnant women. There have been no reports of illness, but people who think they may have been sickened should consult with a physician.

Food contamination is a frequent threat in the nation's food supply. Any suspect foods should be disposed of or returned to the place of purchase as per the product recall. A person who believes he or she may have suffered ill effects from consuming contaminated foods may wish to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. In the event of an illness or injury caused by contaminated foodstuffs, a civil suit against the responsible party may be possible. A successful claim can assist with medical costs, lost wages and other verifiable losses.
