Union International Food Co., the spice manufacturing and packaging plant whose black and white pepper products have been linked to 60 salmonella cases in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, is being sued by a So Cal man.
David Navarrette, of San Pedro, is suing the Union City plant for negligence and claims in the lawsuit that the company did not fulfill its “duty to take reasonable measures” to protect consumers. Specifically, the company failed to monitor adequately the safety and sanitary conditions of its premises and to follow federal guidelines, among other allegations cited in the suit.
