Atlanta parents place a high priority on the safety of their babies. When a product recall involves baby food, these parents understandably become very worried. As such, it is important that the companies which produce baby food remain vigilant about their products’ safety. If it is ever discovered that a manufacturer failed to do so, consumers may choose to pursue products liability lawsuits. This provides an avenue through which such companies can be held accountable for selling a dangerous product.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a recall has been issued for baby food products made by Beech-Nut Nutrition. Some of the company’s sweet potato and chicken products have been found to contain small pieces of glass. The USDA has classified this as a class I recall, which carries a high warning of health risks.
One reported injury has been linked to the defective baby food. Reports do not explain the severity of that injury or whether any product liability lawsuit has been filed due to the incident.
It is estimated that nearly 2,000 pounds of baby food may be contaminated. The affected product line was distributed to sellers across the country. It is recommended that those who have ingested this product seek advice from a healthcare provider.
When a manufacturer sells dangerous children’s toys, contaminated food or any other sort of defective product, serious injuries can result. Those who have been injured by a defective product may want to speak with an attorney. This can provide an opportunity to learn more about their legal options.
