Products Liability An Issue In Case Of Salmon Sent To New Jersey

Posted on

New Jersey is among the states in which consumers may need to use caution when purchasing certain seafood products. According to recent reports, several states have been sent cold smoked salmon manufactured by Delifish, which may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria is known for causing serious illness or even death. Though no reports have indicated such, Delifish may need to brace for the potential of products liability claims should anyone fall victim to the dangerous organism.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration originally announced a recall of the smoked salmon products in December of last year. Now, the recall has been expanded from lots 249 to 291 to all of the lots from 235 to 345. So far, the potentially dangerous product may affect 15 states.

Listeria is particularly dangerous to the younger and elderly populations and those with compromised immune systems. In addition, women who are pregnant may be more susceptible to the dangers of the organism, which can cause miscarriages and stillbirths. Consumers who have consumed the products affected should be on the lookout for symptoms such as nausea, abdominal pain, severe headache and fever. Anyone who suspects that they have fallen ill from the product should seek medical attention immediately, and document the product purchased, their medical records, expenses and any other pertinent information.

Reports released shortly following the recall indicate that no illnesses have been reported as of yet. Should any New Jersey consumer find themselves ill after consuming Delifish brand smoked salmon, they may be interested in gaining an understanding of our state’s products liability laws. Under these laws, victims may find it within their rights to seek damages against the manufacturer to seek reimbursement for their medical expenses and any other damages sustained due to the potentially dangerous product.
