Trader Joe’s Issues Product Recall due to Listeria Contamination

By Alpert Schreyer on December 7, 2012

The St. Mary’s County product liability lawyers at Alpert Schreyer understand that contaminated food can be as dangerous as any other type of defective product. Nationwide company Trader Joe’s has recently issued a recall of its “Trader Joe’s Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice” totaling 4,865 pounds. As reported by The Huffington Post, Trader Joe’s has revealed that the product may be contaminated with Listeria.

The potentially-contaminated cartons of the chicken were already distributed to 16 states across the nation. The product was imported from Canada and the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is worried that many have already purchased and possibly consumed the contaminated product. As the chicken dish is produced as ready-to-eat, many eat the dish the same day that they are purchased. Aliya Foods, the company which produced the butter chicken dish, stated that the products are marked with product code “2012-10-31” and lot code “30512.”

Those who eat food contaminated by listeria may suffer listeriosis, which is especially dangerous to pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and anyone suffering from a weakened immune system. But anyone can suffer ill effects from the infection. Often, companies that do not properly clean equipment used for packaging and distributing food can accidentally infect their products with listeria.

Proving that a company was at fault for a defective product and finding needed compensation for the physical, financial, and emotional losses suffered can be a difficult process for victims without proper legal representation.
