New Jersey Consumers Beware Of Dangerous Product Frozen Food

Posted on

New Jersey consumers may benefit from being aware of a recent recall that has affected products distributed nationwide. Rich Products Corp. has voluntarily recalled multiple Farm Rich product lines that may be contaminated with E. coli. The potentially dangerous product lines include Mini Quesadillas, Mini Pizza Slices, Philly Cheese Steaks, Mozzarella Bites and many more.

The recalled products reportedly have a “best by” date range between Jan. 1, 2013 and Sept. 29, 2014. Farm Rich distributes products across the United States in retail stores, and according to reports, the contaminated products have been connected to E. coli illness reports in 15 states. So far, 24 individual illnesses are reported. Symptoms of E. coli can include cramping, nausea, vomiting and more. Consumers who are afraid that they may have been exposed to E. coli can contact the company for additional information.

If symptoms of E. coli present themselves, consumers may benefit from seeking medical attention. E. coli can be a serious condition, and consumers may benefit from gaining an understanding of the signs, symptoms and treatment options available. In some cases, E. coli can cause more serious health problems that may require treatment and potentially lengthy recovery times.

Anytime New Jersey consumers become ill from a bacterium such as E. coli, they can be affected both physically and financially. Fortunately, there are laws in place to protect consumers after being exposed to a dangerous product. Under New Jersey products liability laws, consumers who suffer financial loss due to a dangerous product may be able to seek compensation for these losses through a civil claim. Successfully litigated civil claims can provide much needed financial support to consumers who have become ill after being exposed to a contaminated product.
