Lawsuits are besieging the food industry. There are traditional claims by individuals who have been injured or made ill after ingesting food products. So, for example, on Sept. 5 an elderly woman sued Splendid Products, a distributor of Daniella-brand mangoes, in a Western District of Washington federal court alleging she became ill with salmonella after eating a mango produced in Mexico. Lab tests confirmed her salmonella serotype matched that of a multistate salmonella outbreak traced to mangoes. Plaintiff asserts claims in strict liability, negligence and breach of express and implied warranties.
