Cooked Chicken Breasts Recalled for Contamination Risk

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 15, 2011

House of Raeford has announced that they are voluntarily recalling more than 4,100 pounds of a cooked chicken breast product due to possible bacterial contamination. After conducting an investigation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said that the chicken may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can lead to listeriosis, a potentially fatal disease. The product was distributed to delicatessens and food service facilities in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina for further processing.

Consumers and foodservice workers are cautioned to look for 18- to 22-pound boxes containing two 9- to 11-pound “BONELESS OVEN ROASTED CHICKEN BREAST” products. The recalled chicken will carry the establishment number “P-239A” inside the USDA inspection mark along with a product code of “94268” and a package date of “1270” (September 27, 2011).

Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham is especially concerned about this food recall as listeriosis can be fatal to people with compromised immune systems, such as young children and senior citizens. Most people who ingest this bacterium suffer from unpleasant but manageable symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping, fever, muscle aches and other flu-like symptoms.

In children and older adults, listeriosis can lead to deadly conditions such as septicemia and meningitis, which can quickly overwhelm their immune systems. Even if they aren’t fatal, these conditions can severely compromise their health, independence and quality of life. Mr. Cunningham urges anyone who may have purchased and/or eaten this product to contact the establishment where it was purchased. For more information, they can also contact their local health department.

When we buy a product of any kind, we have a right to expect that it is safe to use. Sadly, a cursory glance at any newspaper or news program on television will reveal that this is frequently not the case. Whether they know that their product is unsafe to use or not, manufacturers of defective products can be held liable for damages by anyone who has suffered due to the product. If you have been injured due to a defective product and you would like to speak with an Orlando personal injury attorney who has a proven record of success in product liability cases, call Mr. Cunningham today at 888-425-2004 or 407-425-2000 to schedule a free consultation.
