In the latest scandal involving Chinese food exports, tainted ginger has recently been recalled. Apparently, the ginger contained a toxic pesticide.
State and federal health officials are now working to determine how the ginger got into this country and how widely it has been sold. It’s not the first time that contaminated Chinese ginger has been a problem.
U.S. port inspectors in Seattle have turned away shipments of Chinese ginger that contained pesticides in recent months, according to news reports. And Japanese authorities acknowledged this month that they mistakenly allowed 25 tons of Chinese ginger laced with pesticide into their country.
This latest scare seems all to familiar with the recent recall of Chinese Wheat Gluten that led to this firm’s prosecution of a class action lawsuit against Canadian Importer Menu Foods. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of the tainted ginger, experienced attorneys can advise you of your potential legal remedies.
