Sliced apples may be dangerous product for some in Pennsylvania

Parents in Pennsylvania often reach for snacks such as apples to feed their children. The intent is to get kids eating healthy fruits and vegetables rather than the junk foods to which they are attracted. However, now it seems that feeding kids apples from one manufacturer may be a more dangerous product than any junk food.

Packaged, sliced apples that were distributed to fast food chains such as Burger King and McDonalds, as well as grocery stores are the subject of a dangerous product recall that may be of interest to parents across Pennsylvania. The apples, packaged by a company owned by Ready Pac Foods Inc. were distributed across 36 states. All of the packages have use by dates from July 8 to August 20.

Though no reports of serious illness have yet been made as a result of consuming the apples, they are suspected of being tainted with Listeria. Listeria is the same illness that resulted in the deaths of 30 people last year after they ate contaminated cantaloupe. The illness can cause flu-like symptoms and may be particularly dangerous to pregnant women.

If a person finds that they have the dangerous product in their refrigerator, they are asked to contact Ready Pac. With a reported 296, 224 units distributed before the discovery of the dangerous contamination, it is likely that some readers may have come in contact with the product. This potential dangerous contamination illustrates that a dangerous product can take many forms, including those thought to be natural and healthy. When illness or injury occurs from a dangerous product, residents should act fast. Seeking the advocacy of an experienced team can help those ill or injured exercise their legal rights and work for a favorable outcome.
