Product recall of foods that could cause illness

When one goes to the grocery store in Ohio and purchases packaged, processed foods, one expects that the items will be safe to eat. One might check an expiration or sell-by date, but otherwise, the purchase is made with confidence that it is safe. A recent product recall by Ukrop's Homestyle Foods may give consumers a reason to take a second look at some purchases.

Product recall linked to a possible e-coli outbreak

The USDA exists to maintain safety in the United States food supply. People in Ohio go to a grocery store and trust the process that is in place to protect the food that they are purchasing. This allows them to shop with confidence that the food they are buying is safe to eat. While that is almost always the case, occasionally problems arise and a product recall is issued.

Investigation Reveals Faulty Food Practices At Chipotle As Reports Of Illnesses Rise

The number of Powell, Ohio Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant patrons, affected after eating food at the restaurant grew and now is slightly over 700 victims according to the Delaware County General Health District. The outbreak signals that despite spending millions of dollars on food safety measures at its restaurants, there are likely remaining issues with the chain's food handling practices.

Food products can be defective, too

When it comes to product defects, the first things that come to mind might be mass produced goods. Many may remember the national Tylenol recall of 1982, prompted by product tampering that killed seven people. In 2014, General Motors recalled 30 million cars due to faulty ignitions that resulted in 124 deaths. And then there's the Takata air bag recall that continues today.

Cooking spray can be a dangerous product

Cooking is a task carried out many times a day in homes all across the country and in Ohio. While accidents happen, most people exercise caution and care in the kitchen to prevent injuries. Most people wouldn't expect a can of cooking spray to be the cause of a serious accident and probably wouldn't view it as a dangerous product.

A young man's death blamed on a defective product

July 4 is rapidly approaching and it brings with it thoughts of all things American -- hot dogs, apple pie and sports. Few will argue that youth sports are not beneficial to young people. Participation in sports in Ohio teaches teamwork, good sportsmanship and perseverance. None of this should happen at the cost of a child's safety. A recent case charges that a defective product was at fault in one such instance.

Defective product believed responsible for Ohio teen's death

Teenagers drive family vehicles to school and stow their books, sports gear and whatever else they need in the car.  When they want one of these things, they go to the car and expect to be able to safely retrieve it. One Ohio teen did just that, but the consequences turned tragic. Now, it's claimed that a defective product caused his death, and the incident has received extensive media coverage across the country. 

Dangerous product: Teens and Facebook detergent-pod challenge

Social media is playing a significant role in exposing teenagers to the risk of ingesting harmful chemicals. Reportedly, teens respond to online videos showing others taking part in a Facebook challenge that involves putting detergent pods in their mouths. Parents in Ohio and elsewhere were recently warned that this dangerous product is no longer only a threat to small children who are attracted to the brightly colored squishy balls containing concentrated detergents for use in washing machines and dishwashers.

Ohio residents may be affected by recent product recall

When a common food product is deemed contaminated or dangerous, it would be wise for people to pay close attention to the details. Ingesting or coming into contact with contaminated food has been known to cause serious illnesses or even death. Residents of Ohio will especially want to make note of a recent product recall involving a popular ice cream.
