Class action commenced regarding Costco recall of Nature's Touch Organic Berry Cherry Blend

LONDON, ON and TORONTO, April 28, 2016 /CNW/ - Siskinds LLP has launched a class action regarding the recall of Nature's Touch Organic Berry Cherry Blend due to possible contamination with Hepatitis A. 

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued various public warnings that certain bags of Nature's Touch Organic Berry Cherry Blend sold exclusively at Costco warehouse locations in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador may be contaminated with Hepatitis A. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency states that there have been reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product. Further information about the recall is available on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website:

Among other things, the plaintiff alleges that Nature's Touch negligently produced the Organic Berry Cherry Blend, which was negligently distributed by Costco and seeks to recover on behalf of purchasers of those products and their family members.  Siskinds LLP acts in a proposed class action for Canadians seeking compensation for physical injury, medical expenses, lost wages or employment income, and a refund for the cost of purchasing the recalled product. Siskinds LLP continues to investigate the case.

Consumers who purchased the recalled Berry Cherry blend should retain copies of related receipts. Consumers who believe they might have consumed Nature's Touch Organic Berry Cherry Blend and are experiencing physical discomfort (symptoms range in severity and include fever, loss of appetite, stomach cramps, and jaundice) should seek medical advice and retain copies of any related medical reports, prescriptions, etc. 

Elizabeth deBoer, a lawyer with Siskinds LLP, describes the purpose of the proceeding: "Canadian consumers have a right to trust that the food they purchase is of the quality and standard they expect, such that it is safe for consumption and will not pose a health risk. This lawsuit seeks to protect that right." 

Siskinds LLP have been counsel in many product liability and other class actions, recovering millions of dollars for consumers.
