In a news release issued on December 6, 2011, Cargill Animal Nutrition, with the full cooperation of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced a voluntary safety recall for two regional brands of its dry dog food, River Run and Marksman Dry Dog Food, because of the potential for these brands to be contaminated with Aflatoxin. Neither the company nor the FDA have received any reports of illness in association with this recall. The company is implementing the recall as a precautionary measure and has urged its customers to return the affected products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
As a Renton personal injury attorney, I understand the potential devastating illnesses and injuries that can result from consuming and handling contaminated food and have seen this kind of precautionary recall many times over the coarse of my career. If you have fallen ill through the consumption or handling of a contaminated or otherwise defective food product, contact a personal injury lawyer experienced in these matters to discuss your legal rights as they pertain to the matter.
