Recalled Beef Just The Latest Problem For Californians

Posted By Simpson Law Group LLP Trial Attorneys Posted in:Product Liability

November 16 2018

Last week, the USDA announced yet another recall on beef products. This time, the Swift Beef Co. was the target of recalls. Approximately 100,000 pounds of raw ground beef products have been recalled because they may be contaminated with E. coli.

The items that were recalled were shipped to the following states: California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

As of the time of writing, nobody has gotten sick from these products. While we are thankful for that, we know that this is just part of a larger product trend for people in this state.

At the Simpson Law Group, it seems like we are dealing with recalls now more than ever. Do you know where to turn if a product you use causes you or your loved ones harm?

When you need a San Diego product liability attorney, turn to our trusted professionals to help you get the compensation you need.

What Can Happen

Imagine for a moment that your child has peanut allergies. We know that you take all the steps necessary to limit their exposure to peanuts, including reading every single label for each food you buy to ensure they will not ingest the allergen.

But what happens if peanuts are left off of a label when they really are in the food you just gave to your child?

We know that this can cause a serious emergency. We also know that companies are responsible for listing allergens on their labels.

Product liability cases arise in one of three ways:

  • Labeling Errors – like the scenario above, companies must list all hazards associated with their products on the label. This includes hard goods (toys, appliances, etc.) as well as foods, cosmetics, and medicines. Dosages also need to be labeled correctly on medications to ensure that the correct amount is given.
  • Design Errors – if a product has a design flaw, it may end up causing harm to the consumer. This can involve both hard goods as well as foods and medications.
  • Manufacturing Mistakes – if a problem during manufacturing alters a product from its original design, consumers could be in jeopardy.

There are thousands of recalls going on in this country right now. While we usually only hear about the ones involving major food contaminations or vehicles, you need to be aware that many less talked about products can also be faulty and cause you harm.
