According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the product’s manufacturer Locker Brand Inc. Of Henderson, Nevada is recalling certain Medicine Bottle Storage Containers.
Consumers are being advised they should stop using these items due to the possibility the product’s lock can become loose, which could lead the container to open unexpectedly. This issue could pose a threat since unauthorized individuals could have access to the medicine that is stored inside these containers.
According to the federal agency, there are 59,600 units affected by this recall. The company has stated that no injuries or illnesses related to these products were reported so far.
As a Bellevue injury lawyer, I urge you to contact the company immediately. If you own one of these recalled units, you can return the item to the company at once and ask for a full refund. Do not delay.
If you or a dear friend is ever harmed through the use or consumption of a recalled product, keep it in mind that you could contact a personal injury lawyer in your city to fight for your legal right.
In a press statement, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in conjunction with Big Lots, announced the voluntary recall of the Microfiber Glider Recliners with Ottomans and Leather Glider Recliners with Ottomans due to the potential entrapment and finger crushing hazards that they pose to consumers.
The recall was initiated after an exposed gap between several moving parts of the chair and base framework was observed that could potentially allow access to toddlers and infants and pose an entrapment hazard. Other exposed parts on the products have been found to pose finger crushing and pinching hazards to older children and adults. The recall affects roughly 375,000 units of the Recliners and Ottomans. These products can be identified by the labels underneath the seats of the recliners that read “Donngguan Shindin Metal & Plastic Products Ltd.” There is also a smaller label on the front metal bar under the seat that reads “Maximum wt load 250lbs.” They were available at Big Lots stores across the nation from January 2005 through December 2009.
Consumers are being urged to immediately stop using the chairs and to contact the company to receive a free repair kit that will cover the base frame and hazardous moving parts.

In a press release, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in conjunction with Meijer, announced the voluntary recall of the company’s “Innovations” and “At Home with Meijer” Roman shades and roll-up blinds due to the potential strangulation hazard they pose to consumers.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the Roman shades pose a strangulation hazard to children if a child were to place their neck between the exposed inner cord and the fabric making up the backside of the blind, or if a child were to remove the cord and become entangled in it. The Roll-up blinds pose a similar hazard if the lifting loops slide off the side of the blind and a child were to place their neck between the loop and roll-up blind fabric.
This recall affects roughly 3,200 units, in addition to the 240,000 already recalled in March of 2010. The blinds were available at discount retailers, dollar stores, flea markets and other retail liquidators across the nation from March 2010 through September 2011.
Consumers are being asked to discontinue their use of the blinds immediately and to contact the company for a free repair kit in order to remove the threat.
As a Bellevue personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen recalls similar to this in the past and understand the devastating effects that they can have on those injured.

Media sources reports that a 19-year-old Lynnwood man and his 12-year-old passenger were moderately injured in an accident on Interstate 5 in Lynnwood Monday night.
According to Washington State Patrol trooper Keith Leary, the accident occurred during the evening commute in the southbound traffic lanes of Interstate 5 near 164th Street SW in Lynnwood. Authorities believe the 19-year-old driver was traveling in the left lanes when, for unknown reasons, his Honda struck the center interstate barrier. The impact forced the driver to lose control of the vehicle and cross all traffic lanes and strike a big rig trailer. The Honda became wedged underneath the wheels of the big rig’s trailer and was dragged for roughly 700 feet before the vehicle was able to stop.
The 19-year-old driver and 12-year-old passenger were transported to a Seattle hospital for the treatment of moderate injuries. The 19-year-old was treated and released within the same night, however the 12-year-old remained hospitalized well into Thursday. Updates on their condition were not available at the time of this release. The driver of the big rig was not injured in the accident.
Washington State Patrol officials are continuing to investigate the cause of the accident and suspect that the incident may have been a possible vehicular assault. At the moment, unsafe lane changing is suspected as a contributing factor to the crash.
As a Bellevue car accident lawyer, I’m relieved to learn that both victims are recovering from their injuries. I wish both of them a speedy recovery so that they may put this incident behind them. If you’ve been injured in an accident as the result of the negligent driving of another, speak with a car accident lawyer in your town to learn more about the legal options open to you.
Data included in a recent study from the Insurance Information Institute estimates that there are approximately 1.6 million vehicle-deer accidents in the United States annually, resulting in roughly 200 vehicle occupant fatalities, thousands of injuries and over $3.6 billion in vehicle damage. The Washington Department of Transportation reported that over 1,100 wildlife-vehicle accidents are reported to the Washington State Patrol annually, resulting in about 1,200 injuries.
The Washington Department of Transportation (WDOT) stated that more deer-vehicle collisions occur between the months of October and December than any other time of the year. NW Insurance Council president Karl Newman said, “Deer-vehicle collision can cause significant damage to vehicles and serious injury to drivers and passengers. Using caution and staying alert can save your life and eliminate the need for costly vehicle repairs.”
The NW Insurance Council has several defensive driving suggestions to aid in avoiding wildlife while behind the wheel this year. They say paying particular attention to the road, and watching for wildlife, during the hour between sunset and midnight, and just before and after sunrise, will decrease the risk of a collision because these are the highest-risk periods for such accidents. When driving through deer-crossing zones, be especially cautious. Deer seldom travel alone, so if you see one, expect more. If there is no oncoming traffic at night, utilize your high-beam headlights to maximize visibility. If you see a deer run near or in your lane, brake firmly and hold a straight course. Many serious accidents occur when drivers attempt to swerve away from the animals and lose control of their vehicles.
As a Bellevue car accident lawyer, I’ve seen the effects of many deer-vehicle accidents in the past and understand the severity of such collisions. I urge all drivers to practice cautionary driving in areas at risk for such collisions to maximize your chances for safe passage. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you believe was the fault of another driver’s actions, contact a car accident lawyer in your town.
