Individuals with food allergies rely on accurate labeling to ensure that
the food they eat is suitable for their diets. But when corporations fail
to properly label products, the results can be disastrous. If you have
suffered needlessly because a food company decided to prioritize profits
over safety, Golomb & Honik, P.C. can help you recover compensation
for your damages.
According to Reuters, Interbay Food Co LLC is recalling nearly 5,000 pounds
of pork sausages because they contain milk, but the labels did not include
this information. The United States Department of Agriculture said that
the Washington-based company is recalling one-pound refrigerated packages
and five-pound logs of its British Pantry Ltd, British Style Bangers.
Food manufacturers have a legal responsibility to
correctly label foods. The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) of 2006
requires that foods containing major allergens declare these ingredients.
Major allergens include:
- Tree nuts
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees
food labeling and is responsible for ensuring the safety of the food we eat. About five
percent of the American population suffers from a food allergy. If a company's
negligence has caused you harm, Golomb & Honik, P.C. will fight aggressively
to protect your rights and hold the negligent food manufacturer accountable.
