While we may hear about recalls of various products on the news, we probably never think we will end up needing a product liability attorney Montebello. However, if the careless or negligent actions of a company or manufacturer have caused you or a loved one harm, we are here to help.
At the Hayes Law Firm, APC, our knowledgeable and experienced team will thoroughly investigate your case so we can secure the compensation you need. Today, we want to highlight a recent food recall case.
What happened with Perdue?
Why does it seem like we hear about major food recalls every other night on the news? While we are grateful that potential hazards are being discovered, we would rather not have to worry about the food supply being contaminated with anything at all.
The latest major recall happened on June 1 when the US Department of Agriculture said that over 30,000 pounds of Perdue’s ready-to-eat chicken products might be contaminated with “extraneous materials.”
They say that these fully cooked chicken products were produced in March and contain many popular items that shipped throughout the country.
Is this a common problem?
While you may only hear about a few recalls a year, the problem with defective products is actually much larger than you think. We know that the government website that tracks all current recalls shows us hundreds of current products on the market that are faulty.
However, do you check that list often?
If it were not for our job, we probably would not see just how widespread the problem is. Faulty products make it off the production lines and into our homes all the time. In many cases, consumers never know there is a problem until something happens to cause harm to them or their loved ones.
No industry is immune. When you look at the recall website, you will see that there are cleaners, toys, foods, medications, cosmetics, cars, boats, tools, and more that are all on the list.
Products become faulty in various ways, but most commonly the issues revolve around:
- Poor product designs
- Errors made during the manufacturing process
- Problems with a product’s label
When a company or manufacturer is responsible for causing consumer injuries or illnesses, they should be held accountable.
