Baby food recalled for fear of bone fragments


New Jersey residents buy consumer goods without fear that they will get a dangerous product. However, far too often defective products make their way to store shelves, thereby putting unsuspecting consumers in harm's way. The use of these dangerous products, which may have inadequate labeling, a defective design, or defective parts, can lead to serious injuries and even death. Those affected by these types of products can face an extensive time period of physical, emotional, and financial losses.

Which products are affected by these dangerous defects? All of them. For example, one recent recall involved baby food. The recall comes after fears that the food contains chicken bones came to light. The recall affects some 50,000 pounds of Overhill Farms food, including many of their chicken and vegetable foods. Although the recall is voluntary and there have been no reports of injuries suffered by consumption of the product, this instance illustrates how even the most innocent of products could pose a fatal risk.

Those who have suffered damages as a result of the use or consumption of a dangerous product need to carefully consider their legal options. Not only can a successful products liability lawsuit result in the recovery of compensation for one's losses, but it can also shine an important light on product safety. Hopefully, by imposing liability and making negligent manufacturers pay for their negligence, injured consumers can ensure that additional safety measures are taken to protect other consumers moving forward.

Of course, these companies want to do everything they can to protect their reputation and their profits, which means they will aggressively fight against these claims. However, by having a strong legal advocate by one's side, a plaintiff may be able to increase their chances of success.
