Food poisoning, or food borne illness, affects roughly 48 million people a year, or about 1 in 6 Americans. It can be a potential liability for a restaurant or a food packaging company -- and a painful purchase for their customers and buyers.
By inadequately handling, packaging, or even inspecting their food, businesses often must pay up for making people sick. In extreme examples, a company can even face a wrongful death suit.
If your business regularly handles raw eggs, meat, poultry, or leafy greens, you should tread -- and stir -- carefully by complying with all Massachusetts food safety regulations.
