KTVU Interviews Steven Kronenberg Regarding Legal Liability Issues in Recent Thanksgiving Meal Tragedy

San Francisco Bay Area health officials are trying to determine what caused the death of three people and sickened at least another 18 after eating a church-sponsored Thanksgiving feast held at the American Legion in Antioch, California. While the cause of this tragedy has yet to be determined, Steven Kronenberg weighs in on potential legal liability issues in his interview with KTVU.

Kronenberg explained that generally, donors of properly packaged and labeled goods are not liable for negligence under the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act. However, when cooked meals injure people, then the persons responsible for preparing and serving the food may be subject to negligence liability.
