News sources have declared Rio Grande Imports Inc. has issued an allergy alert recall for Semita de Piña, a pastry filled with pineapple jam sold in individual packages due to undeclared dairy among the ingredients.
All consumers who happen to have a serious allergy or some type of sensitivity to milk and derivatives are urged to make sure they will not consume this product. The FDA announced the recall along with the company after the New York State Department of Agriculture took a sample into the laboratory for testing so an evidence of the presence of milk in the product could be obtained.
The product is packed in clear plastic overwrap and the name El Triunfo is printed on its label. The code of the recalled item is 11-22-11. No case of illness was allegedly reported regarding the consuming of the recalled products.
As a Bellevue personal injury attorney I hope that this post has made readers nationwide aware that undeclared allergens can represent a major risk. Consumers must be aware of the risks linked to the consumption of products containing undeclared ingredients.
For the case of an eventual personal injury case related to contaminated food products, don’t hesitate in contacting a personal injury lawyer that will help you to get the justice you deserve.
There have been different news sources claiming that the popular Beef Jerky manufactured by the Texas-based company Whittington’s Jerky Inc. is being recalled. Salmonella contamination is claimed to be the cause for this recall.
According to the news, over 120 pounds of beef jerky might be contaminated with the powerful bacteria. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Satefy and Inspection Service claim that both 2oz and 4oz packages of Beef Jerky sold in convenience stores in West Texas should not be consumed, if you have purchased any of these items return them immediately.
Salmonella is a dangerous bacterium that may cause one of the most life-threatening food borne illnesses to humans who have weak immune systems.
As a Seattle wrongful death attorney I hope that nobody will be affected by the contaminated beef jerky. Although this is an issue for residents of the state of Texas, Washingtonians should always be alert of different food recalls in the case the issue hits home.
Whenever a person has put under a major health risk because of a contaminated food sample, it is important that a personal injury lawyer will be contacted right away. Instead of waiting for answers from the company that has caused your problems, look for an experienced attorney to answer to the questions related to your case.
In news statement, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in cooperation with General Motors Company (GMC), announced the recall of certain 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles because they contain tire pressure monitoring systems that do not meet federal safety standards.
The recall affects roughly 34,000 Equinoxes and Terrains from the model year 2012. This recall was initiated by the NHTSA after the agency found that the vehicles feature tire pressure monitoring system computers that fail to alert drivers when their tire pressure falls below the federal safety standard. The federal standard for tire pressure monitoring systems in vehicles is designed to alert drivers when the air pressure in any of the vehicle’s tires falls under 25 percent of the vehicle’s recommended cold inflation pressure. Certain models of each vehicle fail feature tire pressure monitoring systems that fail to illuminate the dashboard warning light until the internal tire pressure falls to a level beneath the 25 percent standard.
According to the NHTSA, improperly inflated tires can result in the overheating of the tires or even blowouts, which can further result in auto accidents that involve injury. Underinflated tires can also result in premature and uneven tread wear, poor vehicle handling and increase fuel consumption.
General Motors plans to begin notifying known affected consumers this month of the NHTSA recall. Owners will be scheduled to bring in the vehicle to a local dealership where technicians will replace the faulty modules free of charge.

In a press release, ADT Security Services, in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced the voluntary recall of their CO 1224T Carbon Monoxide detectors due to their failure to alert consumers of their need to change the batteries.
This recall was initiated after it was found that the CO detectors failed to generate an alarm sound in the home alarm panel to inform consumers, and ADT’s alarm-monitoring center that the batteries were in need of replacement. Some of the units were wired improperly to ADT security system, which resulted in the failure of the alarm sounding in the home panel. The CPSC also reported that the CO detectors fail to signal the ADT alarm-monitoring center at the end of the unit’s useful life. This recall only affects the hard-wired detectors with the model number CO 1224T. The model number is located behind the front cover of the device.
Consumers are being urged by both the CPSC and ADT to contact the company for a free inspection of the recalled units.

In a news statement, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in conjunction with Evergreen Enterprises, announced the voluntary recall of the company’s Fireside Gel Fuel Bottles due to the potential burn and flash fire hazards they present to consumers.
This recall affects approximately 23,400 bottles of Fireside Gel Fuel in 30-ounce bottles. The gel fuel was available with and without citronella. They can be identified by the words “Fireside”, “Gel Fuel”, “Evergreen” and “Flag & Garden” that appear on the container labels. The recall only affects the bottles sold in cases of 12. The gel fuel is intended for use in stainless steel or ceramic cups in the center of ceramic and glass firepots for ignition. The gel fuel was available at independent retailer nationwide from December 2010 through September 2011.
The pourable gel fuel was found to ignite without warning and splatter onto people and nearby objects when added to an already-lit firepot. The burn and flash fire hazards exist when the consumer is unaware or unable to see that the firepot is already lit. Neither the CPSC nor Evergreen Enterprises is aware of any injuries that have occurred in connection with this recall.
Consumers are being urged to immediately stop using the gel fuel and return the bottle to the company for a full refund.

If you happen to see bulletin boards that are filled with any sort of black-and-white flyers, they are referred to as product recalls. These help inform people about potential problems in a particular item, as it may have some primary safety concerns. These kinds of unsafe and defective products are usually recalled. It can happen that the products can be defective, but they are not unsafe. No matter what the issue may be, you need to understand your rights as they pertain to your case and file a complaint regarding a defective or recalled product.
Primarily, consumers are protected by three fundamental laws that enable them with rights in the event products are defective. Product Liability is useful in covering all sorts of injuries that are caused by such defective products. Guarantee deals may help your claim based on the performance and quality of the product. Different Consumer protection laws such as “Lemon Laws” exist to cover all such products that fail to perform exactly as they have been advertised. In fact, an unsafe or defective product can affect a large number of consumers and users can easily file legal claims against them, which are normally resolved in larger class action courts.
As a Federal Way personal injury attorney, I’ve dealt with these kinds of cases in the past and understand the complexities of such legal processes. I urge everyone that has been injured by a defective or unsafe product to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer in their area to help them navigate this difficult process.
