There may be more than one party that could be held liable for infecting a consumer with a foodborne illness, such as the establishment that sold the contaminated food, the person preparing the food, and the manufacturers who supply a restaurant with the raw ingredients. You or a loved one may have been food poisoned if you or a loved one experienced one or more of these symptoms within hours of consuming food prepared by someone other than yourself:
