Here we go again. It seems like we are just getting back to normal with our food after the massive lettuce recall that affected us over Thanksgiving. Now we are learning about an entirely new recall of red lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and cauliflower.

Guess what? This recall is coming from the same farm linked to the Thanksgiving lettuce outbreak.

Check your refrigerators again, because those three products being recalled now were sold in Pennsylvania.

At Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman, we know that these recalls are getting old. Unfortunately, there are others that we do not hear about on the news that pose just as much danger to you and your family. Do you know where to turn if an item that you have purchased has caused you or your loved ones harm?

If you need a Pittsburgh product liability attorney, you can turn to us to recover the compensation you deserve.

What Can Happen?

If we go over and look at the government website that keeps tabs on all current recalls in the US, we will see that the problems go well beyond foods and the occasional vehicle fire. When you look, you will see that there are harmful products on the market that span all industries:

  • Foods
  • Automotive
  • Furniture
  • Appliances
  • Cosmetics
  • Medications
  • And more

Think about how many products you use on a daily basis. Are you sure everything is safe?

These cases usually arise in one of three ways:

  • Design flaws can affect an entire line of a product. Unfortunately, a design flaw is often not discovered until millions of units have been sold. Sometimes, the flaw is not known until years later, as is the case with many products that cause cancer.
  • Manufacturing flaws are errors that occur while a product is being produced that alter it from its original design, rendering it harmful to consumers.
  • Labeling errors can cause serious harm and can occur in durable goods, foods, cosmetics, medications, and more. All ingredients need to be listed on foods. Dosages and side effects should be present for medications. Hazards need to be labeled on hard goods, as well as proper usage instructions.

Always speak with a qualified attorney concerning your particular case so you can take the best path forward.

What Are Your Options?

We know that the last thing you expected to be dealing with was an injury or illness caused by a product you bought to use or consume. If you think that you or a family member were harmed due to a faulty product, you need to secure legal assistance immediately. These cases are not resolved simply by reporting an injury. Companies will often put up a fight or even blame you for your own injury, even when they know they are at fault.
