The World Health Organization estimates that 76 million situations of foodborne illness (food poisoning) occur every year in the United States alone. Of those 76 million food poisoning cases, 325,000 people with food poisoning are hospitalized, and 5,000 people die. With the food creation and distribution globalizing greatly, foodborne diseases that were once limited to small areas may now take place on a global-wide scale.
The leading pathogenic causes of serious illness or death due to food poisoning include:
- Clostridium Perfringens
- Hepatitis A
Food poisoning is a serious health risk, with causes which include negligence, poor sanitation practices and chemical contamination. Almost everyone has suffered from food poisoning at some time in their life. This is often due to the ingestion of countless types of bacteria being harbored in their food.
Symptoms of food poisoning include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or fever. Although many people recover from their food poisoning ordeal, it can be serious or fatal for those with weak immune systems. Food poisoning situations can be complex and determining the cause can be difficult because many symptoms are initially similar to a common flu. Those who have suffered from food poisoning because of negligence or wrongful actions need to consider contacting a qualified personal injury attorney to handle the claim.
