As a product defect lawyer, I have seen food recalls like this one and I know that, with as much testing goes into food products before they are presented for sale, mistakes can still be made. Although our Los Angeles personal injury law firm does not handle these type of cases there are food recall lawyers out there that can help your or a loved one if you have been affected by a recall such as this one. If you notice a defect in a product you have purchased, please notify the company for consumer safety purposes.
