As it turned out later, the family, having enjoyed a cake at dinner, was in the infectious disease ward of the hospital with acute intestinal poisoning in the morning. Worst of all had a girlfriend. She spent several hours in intensive care.
Suspecting the cause of trouble in the culinary product, which was produced in the same supermarket, her husband turned to the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Rights Control. Without any doubt, sanitary doctors checked and identified a number of violations. A fine was imposed on the store, but these measures in no way added to the health of the sweet tooth.
But there are simple rules when choosing culinary products. If you follow them, you can avoid such situations.
So, first look at the shelf life, the integrity of the packaging and the composition of the product. Even this information will be enough to avoid the spontaneous acquisition of low-quality product.
It doesn’t hurt to know that:
Cakes and pastries without finishing creams, as well as wafer cakes are stored no more than 30 days at a temperature of +18.
Products with a cream or fruit finish are stored at a temperature of + 2 ... +6.
There are mandatory shelf life these confectionery products without preservatives:
- with custard - 5 hours;
- with whipped cream - 7 hours;
- with cottage cheese cream - 24 hours;
- with butter cream - 36 hours;
- with protein-whipped cream and fruit trim - 72 hours;
- with fruit jam - 7 days.
A friend at the end of the course of treatment is going to make a complaint to manufacturers in order to receive compensation for moral and physical harm. It is already clear that treatment will be long and costly.
So what should you do if you are poisoned by a low-quality product?
Article 14 of the Law "On Protection of Consumer Rights" states: "The harm caused to the life, health or property of the consumer as a result of constructive, industrial, prescription or other defects of the goods (work, services) shall be reimbursed in full."
Usually such conflicts are resolved in the pretrial order. But to be safe in this situation is still necessary.
You must take a medical report about the diagnosis and the length of stay in the hospital. If possible, keep leftover food and a check, indicating where and when the product was purchased. Without a check, it will be impossible to prove anything.
If a sum of money was spent on treatment, be sure to collect all the supporting documents. By law, the victim has the right to demand compensation for wages received as a result of a forced loss of ability to work. Certificate from the employer will confirm this.
It is hoped that stores and manufacturers of low-quality products will willingly go to compensate for moral damage and damage to health.
If such a miracle does not happen, feel free to file a claim in court and have patience. Justice will prevail. The court will certainly recover from the unscrupulous manufacturer compensation, as well as all the costs of drawing up a claim and paying a lawyer.
