The Lange Law Firm PLLC

We want to do our part to make our nation’s food system safer by providing information, awareness, education, and if needed, access to the courts.

We bring the most up-to-date news about food safety to the public. News about recalls of contaminated food, food poisoning outbreaks, and other food safety problems should not be swept under the rug. Food safety concerns should be brought to light sooner, so that outbreaks can be stopped in their tracks — before more unsuspecting families are harmed by the food they buy.
