New York City attorneys representing owners in the food service industry in defending claims of Negligent Food Handling in bars, restaurants, and nightclubs in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.
Negligent Food Handling is the service of unsafe food or drink or, the service of safe food or drink in an unsafe manner. Uniform Commercial Code §2-315 sets forth the legal requirement when serving food and beverage to consumers. It reads: “Where the seller…has reason to know…that the buy is relying on the seller’s skill or judgment to select or furnish suitable goods, there is…an implied warranty that the goods shall be fit for such purpose.” New York City holds food safety courses and DOH Inspectors work hard to ensure that local restaurants are safe and sanitary. If a patron becomes ill, get their name, address and telephone number, as well as their doctor’s name and telephone number, and make a record of what they ate and drank.
