Food Safety Hazards in Restaurant Food Preparation

Food Safety Hazards in Restaurant Food Preparation

Restaurants have a responsibility to take action to improve their food safety practices whenever possible. Failures in safe food preparation can cause very serious health problems for customers, who may become very sick due to improperly prepared or stored food. If a restaurant’s practices result in serious illness or suffering for a customer, that customer may be entitled to pursue financial compensation for their suffering from the restaurant.

If you or someone you love has developed an illness because of a restaurant’s poor food safety standards, there may be legal action available to fight for financial compensation for medical costs and other expenses. For more information regarding your rights and options as a wronged consumer, contact a Denver personal injury lawyer from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today by calling (303) 423-1770.

Poor Food Safety Practices in Restaurants

Although many food-related illnesses are caused by problems with the food itself, a restaurant can contribute to health hazards for customers through poor preparation standards. The following may be considered health code violations and basic violations of customer safety rules:’

  • Failing to clean hands before cooking or handling food
  • Failing to properly clean the kitchen, especially after handling raw food
  • Allowing pets or animals in the kitchen during cooking
  • Reusing unclean dishes or utensils
  • Failing to cook potentially dangerous dishes properly, such as certain meats

These food safety problems can lead to very serious health complications for customers. In this situation, financial assistance may be available for affected consumers through a product liability lawsuit.
