Costco Berries Make Individuals Sick Around The Country

In somewhat strange news, a man in California became sick in the last few weeks after eating Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend Berries from Costco. The man, who tested positive for Hepatitis A after consuming the berries, joins a growing list of nearly 100 people who have allegedly contracted the disease after eating the berries.

We as consumers have a reasonable expectation that the products we buy will function as advertised, and without causing any unnecessary harm. In the case of food, we can also reasonably assume that the food we eat will not give us diseases such as hepatitis. Fundamentally, this is a significant purpose of the regulations imposed by organizations such as the FDA. When a manufacturer of food puts their goods on the market it is important that these goods are properly labeled and free from serious defects.

If they haven't already, this man and others like him will probably bring a products liability lawsuit against Costco. These sorts of suits are brought when a product has caused harm to someone and the creator of that product is held responsible. In a case such as this a good attorney would seek things such as medical damages and compensation for time missed at work.

Product liability lawsuits actually play an important role in protecting the public health. Without this important check on manufacturers, it would be possible to produce and sell a whole host of goods that may not be properly examined before they are sent out. If you've been injured by a defective product it's important to note that this isn't your fault, and that you should be entitled to a fair and reasonable compensation for the difficulties arising out of your injuries.
