Cookie Tins Recalled due Possible Contamination

Posted on October 31, 2011

News sources have reported that a recall was issued of an unfortunate number of 85,000 butter cookie canisters from a major National drug store chain. Sources claim that the alleged reason behind the recall is that they might be contaminated with the bacillus cereus virus.

The intake of products contaminated with this microorganisms cause vomiting, diarrhea and nausea. Many cases have shown that there might be more serious health problems related to this virus but sources have failed in naming all of which have been verified by health reports.

The Food and Drug Administration officers claim that after an alleged uncharacteristic odor, the investigations were initiated to determine the causes behind the problem. The recall was issued as soon as officials determined the type of microorganisms found in the product cans.

As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer I urge all readers to be aware that similar situations occur to many products sold throughout the Nation. If your health or the health of a loved one has ever been injured or damaged by a product that might have been contaminated in any way, do not hesitate to contact a product liability lawyer.
