New Recalls Affecting Children


One of the many things personal injury attorneys do is fight to protect the helpless, defenseless members of our society, including children. When large manufacturers ignore their duty to exercise reasonable care in the production and distribution of products geared toward children, personal injury and class action attorneys step in and force them to compensate the victims of their negligence and change their practices in the future.

Recently, there have been a large number of recalls and lawsuits related to children’s products that exemplify the importance of holding these large companies accountable for their actions.

For example, as discussed in this blog post from The Pop Tort, a class action is now pending in which an Illinois mother is alleging that Abbott Laboratories, Inc. knew that Similac infant formula contained beetle larvae but failed to issue a recall for over a week after learning that the formula was contaminated.
