A distributor of a bottled beverage product required Premier’s professional expertise in food product investigation case near Ottawa, Ontario. The bottled products distribution store was located in a shopping mall, where there was a fire in an adjacent store. Though the fire did not spread into our client’s store, smoke from the fire entered the store’s ventilation system, potentially damaging the beverage product from possible toxic soot deposits on the beverage containers. According to Canadian Food and Drug Regulations, any product with contaminant present on its packaging is not fit for sale or consumption. At the time of the incident there was about $250,000 of product in the store that could be rendered a waste.
