Food to avoid
Here are the nine things this top food safety lawyer won’t eat at home or in a restaurant.
WHEN the pre-cut melon salmonella outbreak hit recently, anybody who has had more than a few conversations with food safety attorney Bill Marler could hear his “I told you so”.
Pre-cut fruit is on the list of foods avoided by Marler, one of the two name partners in Marler Clark, which claims to be the nation’s only exclusively food-borne illness law firm.
In 25 years as a food safety attorney, Marler’s seen how the sausage – and soup, salad, steak, etc – is made and what happens when things go wrong (many of Marler Clark clients’ cases involved hospitalisation or death from food-borne illness).
Marler recently set a list of food you won’t see on his table. – Miami Herald/Tribune News Service
