Federal regulations and government health standards are put in place to make sure our food is safe for consumption. These regulations and standards ensure our food is properly produced, delivered, stored, and prepared. Unfortunately, these regulations and standards aren't always met. This can lead to contamination of food and food poisoning which makes consumers sick. When our food supply makes us sick, the responsible party needs to be held accountable for their failure.

Causes of Food Poisoning

Contaminated and spoiled food and beverages can cause food poisoning. Food poisoning can happen at a restaurant or in your own home; from cooked, packaged, or raw foods. Foodborne sicknesses can be caused by a wide range of bacterial and viral pathogens, parasites, chemicals, and toxins. There are a number of possible causes for food poisoning. At its root, food poisoning is the result of food being contaminated. Contaminants can be introduced to the food in any number of manners, including:

  • Unwashed hands

  • Food being left out too long

  • Unsanitary utensils and cookware

  • Improper storage

  • Contact with raw food

  • Unsanitary growing or delivery methods
