The Dangers of Mislabeled Food Products

Posted on July 19th, 2009 No Comments

When food products are not properly labeled, the pose a threat to many of their consumers.  Those with food allergies or intolerances may suffer severe reactions to products that do not have the proper ingredient listings on them.  Consumers have a right to know what risks are associated with ingesting certain edibles, and failure on the manufacturer’s behalf to provide that information holds them accountable for any injuries sustained, as covered by product liability law.

Dangerous Food Allergies

When food products are not properly labeled, those with food allergies or intolerances may experience dangerous and life-threatening reactions to these items.   Common food allergies include the following:

Lactose (milk)
Eggs
Peanuts
Nuts from trees
Fish
Shellfish
Soy
Wheat

The above food items account for approximately 90% of all food allergies around the world.  People who are allergic to these items but ingest them anyway run the risk of suffering a reaction.  Allergic reactions to food vary depending on one’s intolerance to the item and the amount of it consumed.  At its worst, an individual may suffer anaphylaxis, which is a severe and life-threatening response that must be treated immediately.
