The Indiana Defective Product Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys explain that manufacturers of food products have a responsibility to ensure the safety and purity of items before releasing them to the market. Failure to do so can result in claims of negligence in the event products cause consumers harm.

At least 89 such claims have been filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in connection with illnesses suffered after ingesting contaminated Greek yogurt. According to an article from New York Daily News, a mold associated with diary products made its way into yogurt products manufactured by Chobani in a Minnesota facility.

The company ordered grocery stores to destroy up to 35 types of yogurt. However, many people had already purchased and consumed tainted products by the time a warning to the public was issued.

The company stated the mold could act as an “opportunistic pathogen” in those with compromised immune systems. Anyone who develops symptoms of sickness after consuming the product should contact the FDA to report their case immediately.

Stewart & Stewart Attorneys’ team of Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers also urges anyone who has been affected by the contaminated product to contact a reputable attorney to ensure his or her legal rights are protected.
