What Do The Specialists Say?
David Healey from Carter & Carter Solicitors in Stockport commented on the McCoy’s crisps recall earlier today:
“Consumers who have found plastic in their McCoy’s crisps have legal redress under the Consumer Protection Act and the Sale of Goods Act. The potential consequences of swallowing plastic and it then being digested could be rather serious. Anyone who has been injured or is worried that they have swallowed some plastic should get in touch as quickly as possible.”
