Protecting yourself from harmful product defects

Defective products pose quite a problem. They cannot be detected until something goes wrong. There is no way to tell if you are the recipient of a defective product until it is too late. Because of that, you may have received mild to severe injuries due to product defects or even inadequate labeling.

Glass found in baby food, leads to product recall

Atlanta parents place a high priority on the safety of their babies. When a product recall involves baby food, these parents understandably become very worried. As such, it is important that the companies which produce baby food remain vigilant about their products’ safety. If it is ever discovered that a manufacturer failed to do so, consumers may choose to pursue products liability lawsuits. This provides an avenue through which such companies can be held accountable for selling a dangerous product.     

Products Liability

When residents of Fulton County hear of products being recalled, their thoughts might first turn to items such as dangerous medications or defective child care products. Yet what many of them don’t realize is that literally millions of everyday products both on store shelves and being used consumers are recalled every year. However, many of those items go on being used and even sold simply because information is often not delivered effectively through the appropriate channels in order to ensure that defective products are taken out of circulation.

Recall issued for dry dog and cat food distributed in Georgia

People often hear of "voluntary" manufacturer recalls in Atlanta and may think that returning the affected products or items is optional. The fact is that the word "voluntary" is simply meant to show that the manufacturer has worked out a deal with the appropriate government oversight agency to remove a potentially dangerous product from the market. If and when an injury or illness occurs as a result of using a recalled product, one may still seek compensation from the manufacturer.
