Last week, officials recalled whole cantaloupes sold under the Rocky Ford brand after they were linked to a listeria outbreak.  The cantaloupes came from a melon farm in Colorado.4 deaths and 35 cases of illness linked to the recalled cantaloupes have been reported.  11 of these  cases were in Colorado.Consuming products contaminated with listeria can cause listeriosis.  Listeriosis is typically found in products like deli meats, hot dogs, and cheeses.  Symptoms of listeriosis include fever, muscle pain, stiff neck, headache, digestive problems, and convulsions.Chris Urbina, Colorado's Health Director, said that people who are most likely to be affected by listeria bacteria are people over the age of 60 and people whose immune systems may be compromised from a transplant or a chronic illness.  In addition, infants and pregnant women may be more susceptible to contaminated food-related illnesses like listeriosis.To learn more about how an attorney can help you if you or a loved one has become ill from consuming a toxic food product, contact the Denver toxic food products lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. at (303) 423-1770 today.

Study suggests welfare leads to marital dissatisfa…  

A recent study into the relationship between marital satisfaction and income suggests that couples receiving government assistance -- such as welfare, Medicaid, or food stamps -- are more likely to experience marital dissatisfaction leading to divorce.Researchers involved in the study acknowledge that financial issues are widely known to contribute to divorce.  However, in the study, researchers compared couples within the same income range and compared those receiving government assistance to those not receiving any form of government assistance.Surveys revealed that among couples with an income of $20,000 or less, couples receiving government assistance were much more likely to report experiencing marital dissatisfaction than those couples within the same income bracket, but not receiving government assistance.If you or someone you know is considering filing for divorce and would like to speak with an experienced family law attorney, contact the Denver settlement and mediation lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. at (303) 423-1770 to learn more about how we can help you.
