Personal injury lawsuits might follow burrito and pizza recall

According to a recent announcement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), Bakkavor Foods USA, Inc. recalled almost 800,000 pounds of packaged, prepared burrito and pizza meals. The firm is a food manufacturer with establishments in various locations, including one in Charlotte. The recall followed the firm's discovery that its onion supplier had recalled its products because of potential Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella contamination of the onions. Similar recalls in the past have led to personal injury lawsuits in North Carolina and across the country.

Workers' compensation: Hazards of flood cleanup projects

Along with many other hazards brought about by hurricanes and floods, North Carolina workers who are involved in cleanup work after floods will face many dangers. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says knowledge of potential hazards, appropriate personal protective equipment and safe work practices could minimize risks. The agency further asserts that no one without proper training, experience and the correct equipment should be involved in cleanup and recovery activities. However, many workers' compensation benefits will likely be filed in the aftermath of the floods.

Safety authorities who travel nationwide to assess workplace safety say they come across the same basic safety hazards and violations in all the different industries they visit in North Carolina and elsewhere. The same will likely reflect in an analysis of workers' compensation claims that are filed by injured workers. Reportedly, negligent housekeeping causes many injuries, mostly because spills and clutter are not cleaned up promptly, causing many falls from slips and trips.
