Personal Injury Attorneys in Baltimore: The Danger Out There in New Recalls

 

We all want to believe the products we use and the food we eat are safe.  We also know that is sometimes not the case.  As a personal injury law firm, we fight to achieve fair compensation for clients who suffer serious injury from accidents caused by the negligence or mistakes of others.

In this space, we occasionally touch on new recalls that affect our clients.  We talked earlier about the multistate meningitis outbreak caused by spinal injection of contaminated steroids.   While the meningitis outbreak is high profile, there are other drugs — and foods — subject to recall each month.  Consider the following recent recalls:

  • Zicam brand nasal spray: May be contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia, a potentially antibiotic-resistant bacteria known to cause respiratory symptoms
  • Atorvastatin calcium supplements: Contaminated lots may contain sand-grain-sized pieces of glass
  • Yang Sheng brand cooked salted duck eggs: May contain Clostridium botulinum
  • Nathan brand smoked salmon: May be contaminated with Listeria monocytogene bacteria, of particular concern for young children, pregnant women or immune compromised individuals

Virtually any consumer product is subject to safety recall — from sports and recreation to cars.  Serious car and trucking accidents sometimes find their cause in defective tires and other parts.  If you are injured in an accident, contact the experienced personal injury attorneys in Baltimore at LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton, P.A. to discuss your injury and investigate the real cause of accident.
