The law in Florida on tainted food products is supposed to be strict liability. That means no matter who’s “fault” it may be, if the food is tainted, then the company that sold it to you should be liable for your injury or death. If this actually worked, it would save a lot of court and litigant time and expense trying to run down what cow in what spinach patch gave us the first contamination of our bag of spinach. Unfortunatly, judges often don’t understand strict liability and defendants wrack up a million excuses why they are not liable. We haven’t had any outbreaks of e-coli infested spinach here in Florida yet, and I hope we don’t.
