If you don't become ill or don't receive medical treatment, you don't have a case because a personal injury claim must be documented with medical treatment.
Notify in writing the insurance carriers for the food manufacturer and the store where you purchased the item of your personal injury claim. When you complete your medical treatment and are released by the doctor, obtain your medical bills, medical reports, and documentation of wage loss. Your claim filed with both insurance carriers should include those items.
Compensation for the medical bills is straight reimbursement. The medical reports determine compensation for pain and suffering which is an amount in addition to the medical bills. Compensation for wage loss is straight reimbursement.
If the case is settled with the insurance carriers for the manufacturer and store, NO lawsuit is filed.
If you are dissatisfied with the settlement offers, reject them and file a lawsuit for negligence and strict liability against the manufacturer and store. If the case has settled with one but not both parties, only name the party with whom the case has not settled as a defendant in your lawsuit.
Negligence on the part of the manufacturer is the failure to  exercise due care to produce a product that is not defective.
Strict liability imposes liability whether or not due care was exercised. 
The store is liable even if it could not have known the product was defective.
If the case is NOT settled, your lawsuit must be filed prior to the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations or you will lose your rights forever in the matter.
