Stop Foodborne Illness is a national nonprofit public health organization dedicated to the prevention of illness and death from foodborne illness by promoting sound food safety policy and best practices, building public awareness, and assisting those impacted by foodborne illness.
Foodborne Illnesses can have long term consequences and if you’re in Nebraska, we can help.
At https://stopfoodborneillness.org/awareness/long-term-consequences/ we learn the stoy of Alyssa Chrobuck. At age 5, Alyssa was hospitalized as a result of E. coli poisoning, the source of which was tainted hamburger from a fast food restaurant.
Alyssa, now an adult, suffers from a host of health problems including high blood pressure, chronic colon inflammation, and endometriosis.
As Dr. Robert Tauxe of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, “Folks often assume once you’re over the acute illness, that’s it, you’re back to normal and that’s the end of it. [long-term consequences] are an important but relatively poorly documented, poorly studied area of foodborne illness.”
If you or a loved one has been injured in a foodborne illness accident, let the experienced professionals of Inserra & Kelley stand with you to protect your right to fair treatment and fair compensation.
