Defective product responsible for dog illnesses and deaths

Dogs are considered man's best friend. Most dog owners consider their pets to be part of the family in Ohio. Hundreds of families around the state and around the country have been mourning the loss of a canine family member in recent days. The cause is believed to have come from a defective product that owners were feeding their pets.

Did you buy and item that should have had a product recall?

Ohio residents might be frustrated as the 2019 shutdown of the federal government drags on. Though things seem to be improving and many federal entities are preparing to resume business as usual, there may be some lasting effects of one of the longest shutdowns in history. One thing people may not know is that while the some government entities were closed down or operating on a skeleton staff, everyday consumers were at risk because nobody was watching to issue a product recall, if necessary. 

Pharmaceuticals bear some blame in creation of dangerous product

Medicine is meant to improve a person's physical or mental condition. While medications need to be taken according to instructions to be effective, taking them as instructed should not be harmful. A judge in Ohio has recently issued a ruling allowing several claims against retailers, manufacturers and distributors to proceed. He stated in part of the ruling that these parties had taken part in the creation of a dangerous product that has plagued our nation for the past 20 years.

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.

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.
