Food and Drug Recalls are Cause for Concern for St. Louis Residents

When you pick up your medication at the pharmacy, you have every right to assume that it’s safe. After all, the FDA has very high standards for approving medication, don’t they? The same is true for the food you buy at the grocery store. If it’s on the shelf, it should be safe for it to be in your home, and eventually in your stomach.

Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Every month, it seems as though there’s another food and drug recall, and the reasons are sometimes astonishing. How is it that these medications and food items make it through what should be strict testing and into consumers’ hands? That’s a great question, and the FDA has yet to provide a satisfactory answer.

Your Rights as a Consumer

It’s impossible to catch all the food and drug recalls that are announced. There have been so many, and while you might be aware of some of them, you can’t get them all. So, what are your rights as a consumer?

You have the right to take legal action if you’re harmed because of a food or drug. As your St. Louis defective drug attorney, we can offer excellent legal representation for your case.

Please don’t think that there’s nothing you can do if you’re injured after taking a recalled drug or after eating food that’s been recalled. Contact a St. Louis defective drug attorney immediately.
