Dangers of Defective Food Products and Containers

Food products and containers as a category can include a wide range of products. Generally speaking, it is anything you buy from a grocery store or served at a restaurant. Food production companies are responsible for providing customers with safe food products as well as containers that will not jeopardize the freshness of the food or the safety of the consumer. When a food manufacturing company fails to uphold these responsibilities, they are putting innocent lives at risk of serious health complications, such as food-borne illnesses or even allergic reactions.

Consequences of Unsafe Products and Containers

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for ensuring that producers sell safe products and that each container is properly labeled. If food is infected with bacteria or other pathogens, the results can be extremely damaging. Some common food borne illnesses caused by defective food products include the following:

  • Salmonella
  • E. coli
  • Botulism
  • Shigella
  • Rotavirus

Additionally, if food containers aren’t properly labeled to indicate ingredients and the potential risk of an allergy, innocent people could consume harmful products that may put them at risk of an allergic reaction that could even end in death.
