Foodborne illness, also referred to as foodborne disease and food poisoning, is illness resulting from contaminated food. A foodborne illness expert witness typically has experience in food science, FDA regulations, and/or has a medical background. A foodborne illness expert witness should feel comfortable explaining evidence to a judge and jury, and should also be familiar with FDA regulation and guidelines, as well as food service and hospitality health inspection rules. To support a food poisoning case, a foodborne illness specialist could provide food product analysis, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a subject matter expert with prior testimony experience. In addition, an attorney may seek a food borne illness or food safety expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
