Product Recalls Plague New JerseyWhen you purchase a product in the United States, the assumption is that it has been adequately tested to ensure its safety. But unfortunately, that is not always the case. Consumers in New Jersey often learn that the products they assumed were trustworthy are actually incredibly dangerous. These individuals may be left with considerable injuries that limit their ability to work and earn an income. These injuries may also leave victims with medical expenses that they cannot hope to pay with their reduced income. Finally, plaintiffs can also suffer a range of non-economic injuries due to negligent products, including emotional distress, PTSD, disfigurement, and much more.

Walmart Recalls 89,000 Bluetooth Speaker Helmets

On March 28th, it was reported that Walmart had been forced to recall 89,000 bluetooth helmets that had been sold exclusively at the retail giant’s stores. According to the US Consumer Safety Commission, these products were being marketed as bicycle helmets despite not meeting the federal safety standards. In other words, people were wearing these bike helmets with the assumption that they would offer some kind of protection from crashes, but in fact they offered very little in that department.

While no injuries have been reported as of yet, there are concerns that some New Jersey residents could have these bike helmets stowed away for summer. If individuals miss this warning and retrieve their helmets during the summer season, they could be in for a serious shock if they fall and strike their heads. In this situation, injured victims could have the ability to sue Walmart and the product manufacturer – Sakar International.

Children’s Easter Chocolate Recalled Due to Salmonella Outbreak

What’s hiding in your child’s Easter egg? A toy, perhaps? Some gooey caramel? According to health authorities, it could be salmonella. Ferrero was forced to recall many of its Kinder products in April due to this concern, and the affected products include Kinder Surprise, Kinder Mini Eggs, and Kinder Schokobons. The US Food and Drug Administration is especially concerned about two products: Kinder Happy Moments Milk Chocolate and Crispy Wafer Assortment, and Kinder Mix Chocolate Treats Basket. So, what is causing the salmonella outbreak? According to the European Food Safety Authority, the culprit is buttermilk that was tainted with salmonella in a Belgian factory. If you or your child has become infected with salmonella, you could have the opportunity to sue the producer of any tainted food product that caused your illness.
