Another Food Recall Due to Possible Listeria Contamination

Lobster meat is the latest product to be recalled for possible contamination. Testing found Listeria monocytogenes in one lot.

It used to be that people could feel safe buying their food at a grocery store or big chain store; lately, that hasn’t been the case. In fact, the Portland Shellfish Company went ahead and expanded their initial recall of lobster meat to include their private label food service product, dubbed Meat Without Feet. “That particular product is a 2-pound pack of ready to consume frozen lobster claw and knuckle meat. The recall came in late June for Lot 13310, sent out in the New York City metro area,” recounted Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.

This whole fiasco first started with a recall of cooked, ready to eat fresh or frozen lobster meat under the various brands cited as: Claw Island, Craig’s All Natural, and Inland Ocean cooked, fresh or frozen lobster claw and knuckle meat. “From there, the recall was expanded. The usual advice was offered to concerned consumers – return the product to where you bought it for a full refund and don’t eat the meat,” added Monroe.

“While it’s all good advice – to return the product for a refund and not eat the meat – the problem may be that not everyone who bought these products will hear about the recall. Those that don’t hear about it and then do eat the lobster may wind up sick. Listeria may cause serious, and at times fatal infections in children and older people and those who have a weakened immune system,” Monroe outlined.

Consumers who are fairly healthy and eat tainted meat may find they contract a high fever, diarrhea, nausea, stiffness, a severe headache, and stomach pains and cramping. Pregnant women run the risk of stillbirths and miscarriages. This is a serious product recall, and for those who may not hear about it until too late, they might be talking to an experienced product liability personal injury lawyer. “As consumers, we have the right to expect that what we eat is safe and won’t harm us. If it does, the maker of that product may be held responsible,” observed Monroe.

For anyone filing a product liability lawsuit that expects their case to take a while to settle, they may want to find out more about pre-settlement funding. This type of legal funding, available from a litigation funding company, is easy to access so long as the person is eligible. If they are, their lawsuit cash advance will arrive quickly, by wire or check.

Pre-settlement funding is cash handed out in “advance” of an expected settlement or court verdict. It allows the plaintiff to pay for all their medical bills and other injury related expenses while they wait for a fair award. They don’t have to settle early and take any offer that comes along from the insurance company. The whole point of a lawsuit cash advance is that the plaintiff has money to tide them over until justice is served in their case.
