Louisiana Law Firm Neblett, Beard & Arsenault Launches New Foodborne Illness Site
Date:3/23/2010 provides detailed information on foodborne illnesses and related issues.

Alexandria, La. (PRWEB) March 23, 2010 -- Outbreaks of foodborne illness are on the increase, affecting millions of people each year who unknowingly eat contaminated foods. A recent study suggests that foodborne illness kill 5,000 Americans and cost $152 billion per year. To assist victims of foodborne illness and their families, Neblett, Beard & Arsenault, a nationally recognized injury law firm, is launching an informative Web site called

“People who have been diagnosed with foodborne illnesses or suspect they have one often have questions about the illness and how they got it,” said Richard J. Arsenault, a partner in Neblett, Beard & Arsenault. “They can find detailed information about the most common foodborne illnesses and foods associated with them at our new Web site.”

The site can be viewed at

Arsenault said the new Web site reflects the high priority that the Alexandria, LA based law firm places on food safety and preventing foodborne illnesses. Foodborne illnesses are surprisingly common, affecting roughly one out of four people in the United States each year. The illnesses often target the most vulnerable members of society—the young, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.

The new Web site features menu items addressing various aspects of foodborne illness and food poisoning, including pathogens that cause foodborne illness such as Salmonella, and E. coli, specific illnesses, risky foods, who is most at risk, how to protect yourself, where you’re likely to contract foodborne illness and recent outbreaks.

“The frequency and severity of foodborne illness outbreaks are troubling, as some of the nationally publicized cases we’ve handled underscore,” Arsenault said. “You can eat a healthy diet, get exercise and still contract a foodborne illness from contaminated food so everyone is vulnerable. That’s why it’s important to bring more attention to foodborne illness and food safety."

The Web site contains customized state pages for residents of Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi. The pages have information about recent outbreaks of foodborne illness in each state and contact information for state health authorities and regulatory agencies that track foodborne illness. A video on the Web site features an interview with Arsenault about foodborne illness.

The Web site also contains recent headlines from the NBA Food Advocate blog, a lively compendium of foodborne illness news and food recalls written by Arsenault. There also are links to the NBA Law blog, which features news about other legal activities involving the law firm and cases in the news.

The Web site also features a user-friendly way to contact Neblett, Beard & Arsenault including an online contact form and questionnaire to facilitate a consultation.
