In a news release, Fair Oaks Dairy Products LLC, in accordance with the standards and with the full knowledge of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), recalled half pound retail packaged cheeses and cheese gift boxes produced under the Fair Oaks Farms Fine Cheese label and sold at stores in Northwest Indiana, Northern and Central Indiana, Northeast Illinois and the Sulphur Springs,Texas area. The products were recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections. Consumers who have purchased any of these products should return the product to the stores where they were purchased to receive a refund.
As a Tacoma personal injury attorney, I’ve seen this kind of food safety recall many times over the coarse of my practice and I understand the tragic injuries that can result from the consumption of a contaminated food product. If you’ve fallen ill due to the consumption or handling of a contaminated or otherwise defective food product, call an experienced personal injury lawyer in your city to discuss your legal rights as they apply to the matter.
