People land in the hospital frequently after eating a tainted food product or being hurt while using a defective product, and if it happens to you, the lawyers at Feiner & Lavy want you to know that it’s not your fault, and you’re not alone.
Every year, the FDA recalls dozens, if not hundreds, of products. In fact, since 2017, the FDA has averaged seven recalls a month! This does not include the voluntary recalls of products that are performed by manufacturers or merchants who discover an issue that the instructions for storage have been violated.
The bigger threat is what happens to people who have bought those products, never hear about the recall, and then use the product? The answer can be that they get sick or hurt.
Companies don’t set out to make people sick or injure people with defective products. Sometimes what happens is manufacturing equipment isn’t properly cleaned or has become worn, and the products they manufacture can be tainted or have weaknesses that didn’t exist when the machinery was newer.
Sometimes these maintenance problems are traceable to negligent employees, but that isn’t something that matters too much. What really matters is that the manufacturer wasn’t careful enough, and because of that carelessness, you are paying a price.
What kind of products are we talking about? Well, it could be a container of ice cream or a jar of peanut butter or dried mushrooms. Or it could be a folding ladder or noise suppression ear muffs for children or a baby car seat and carrier. Any of these could make you sick or leave you or a loved one injured. That two of the products we highlighted are specifically for children should tell you something about how seriously we take this topic.
