Georgia residents should know that Pam and other cooking sprays have been linked to certain injury cases, some extending back to mid-2017. Six lawsuits were filed in the Cook County Circuit Court against Conagra, the Chicago-based company that makes these sprays. The victims all allege that the cooking spray exploded and burned them when they placed it near a stove or grill top. One of the plaintiffs was even blinded in one eye.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has linked over 30 infant deaths since 2009 to the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper, causing the toy company to issue a recall of its product. Parents of infants in Georgia should know about this because the recall is set to affect 4.7 million of the sleepers.
Some tech-minded car buyers in Georgia have a tendency to pay more attention to vehicles that offer the latest features. However, Tesla's high-tech vehicles have sparked some concerns because of a fatal crash and multiple battery fires. There is some debate as to whether or not these results say something about the future of high-tech vehicles.
With Black Friday and the holiday season fast approaching, many parents here in Georgia may be preparing for their holiday shopping. This includes starting to think about what toys to get for their kids this year.
Children's toys, canned goods and blenders are just some of the items that fill Georgia homes. In some cases, they are dangerous products subject to recalls by the companies that manufacture, distribute and sell them. However, the problem is that many of these notices either never or rarely make it to the consumers using the products involved, so they continue using them and could end up injured as a result.
One of the most prevalent chronic conditions patients here in Georgia and elsewhere suffer from is high blood pressure. The medication options for helping control this issue are numerous, and it could take a period of trial and error for a doctor and patient to find the right medication, or combination of medications, that works. This makes the possibility of a manufacturer's medication mix-up even more distressing since a patient could suffer irreparable harm through no fault of the doctor or the patient.
One side effect of growing older is that many Georgia residents find it necessary to take prescription medication in order to control their blood pressure as well as other health-related concerns. The purpose of such medication is to lower the individual's blood pressure and prevent medical complications. Yet, when this medication adds to the individual's medical concerns, there may be a products liability concern that needs to be addressed.
Many Georgia residents now track their daily step counts, heart rates and other important health factors through wearable technology. Of the options on the market, Fitbit is one of the most popular health watches. Now, it could soon be the subject of a products liability claim.
Ritz and Goldfish crackers are staples in most pantries and even diaper bags. Georgia mothers will often use these treats to appease the littlest family members. These small, hand-held snacks can often turn a whiny toddler into a pleasant individual. However, with current products liability claims regarding an ingredient in both products, some moms may find themselves reviewing these boxes prior to doling out the snacks.
Pet owners in Georgia usually spend a great deal of time, money and effort on their beloved animals. Convenience is also a priority, and many owners opt for refilling water dishes, which can be a smart choice during hot summers. However, some water dispensers billed as "dog friendly" are actually quite dangerous. IKEA could soon face products liability claims after its popular water dish killed two dogs.
