Food Liability Law


The Food Liability Law Blog has some interesting posts, including this one that features an Oregon and Washington public health officer: “Is it Really a Food-Born Illness?


At a recent presentation, Dr. Alan Melnick, a public health officer in both Oregon and Washington, provided a useful list of alternative causes of symptoms to consider when someone claims a food-borne illness. Other causes of symptoms that might be confused for food-borne illness include (but may not be limited to):

· Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
· Inflammatory bowel disease
· Malignancies
· Antibiotic use
· Gastro-intestinal surgery or radiation
· Malabsorption syndromes
· Immune deficiency ….”

I’ve blogged before about Food Law, here and here.
