Products liability claims can result from incorrect labeling

Rashes, hives, sinus problems, watery eyes, difficulty breathing - these are all symptoms associated with an allergic reaction. While some reactions present only minor problems, some Georgia allergy sufferers can have severe reactions to certain allergens. For this reason, the typical individual will go to great lengths to avoid products or environments that trigger such an attack. Environmental factors are usually fairly easy to spot; however, products require labeling to notify the consumer regarding specific items contained within the product. When this labeling is not accurate, the individual can suffer, and the product's company can face charges related to products liability.

Individuals who suffer from allergic reactions typically know which products are safe for them to use. When a cold comes on, the individual is able to go to the store and quickly identify those remedies that he or she is able to take. When a new product becomes available, this same individual will most likely read the product label to make sure that it meets his or her needs as well as avoids potential allergens.

Unfortunately, there are times when mistakes happen and a product is mislabeled. For many Georgia consumes, this is not a serious problem. However, for those who are allergic to an item included in the product but not listed on the packaging, it can be a serious issue. Bayer recently recalled one Alka-Seltzer Plus product due incorrect labeling. While no reports indicate a problem with the product, the company recognized that its product had been incorrectly labeled.

In many instances, incorrect labeling is quickly caught and corrected. However, there are times when this is not the case. If a Georgia resident uses or consumes a product that has not been properly labeled and suffers as a result, there may be cause to file a products liability claim. Experienced legal counsel can review the situation to determine the appropriate course of action.
