Raw Cookie Dough Behind E. Coli Outbreak

According to several news sources, dairy products or raw eggs didn’t cause the recent E coli outbreak across the nation like the authorities previously thought. Studies prove that raw flour present in prepackaged cookie dough was the real responsible resource of contaminated material.

The study was conducted by the Clinical Infectious Diseases journal and it discovered that the outbreak from 2009 of E. coli originated with the cookie dough that is distributed in several stores nationwide. The news show that over 70 people were allegedly reported to carry illnesses related to the contamination.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating the ingredient that is responsible for the contaminated cookie dough. Researches firmly believe that the raw flour is the only ingredient that may have gone under the radar while carrying the E. coli bacteria since eggs, sugar and molasses go through a process that kills several pathogens while raw flour doesn’t.

As an Olympia personal injury lawyer I urge all consumers to follow all recall news up closely. If you’re the victim of the negligence of a company that has produced contaminated food items before and that has risked your life or the life of a loved one, do not hesitate and contact a personal injury lawyer to answer to all of your questions regarding your personal injury case.

FDA Issues Letter Addressing Contaminated Cantaloupe Concerns

According to recent news and a report issued by the Food and Drug Administration, producers, processors and shippers of fresh cantaloupe melons must make sure that all guidelines outlined by the FDA in the wake of the Listeria outbreak will be followed thoroughly.

The FDA issued a letter earlier to all cantaloupe melons and produce companies recommending the best practices to eradicate the contamination of products with the Listeria monocytogenes.

Not too long ago, a Listeria outbreak started with the consumption of contaminated melons according to reports from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It was concluded that the cantaloupe industry should review all their operations so future outbreaks could be entirely prevented.

By October 25th, there were 139 alleged confirmed illnesses directly linked to the consumption of the contaminated melons. Sadly enough, 29 deaths associated with this outbreak were also reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Many companies have taken precautions addressing food safety concerns, but the issue hasn’t been completely erased from the agency’s fears.

As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I hope that all victims of this outbreak will have a speedy recovery. Personal injury lawyers are familiar with the tragic consequences of the consumption of contaminated food are always updated when it comes to recall news.

Don’t hesitate in contacting an attorney if you ever need to have your questions answered.
