Watch Out for These Possibly Harmful Products the Next Time You Go Shopping

  1. 1. Watch Out for These Possibly Harmful Products the Next Time You Go Shopping
  2. 2. People love shopping. Having the ability to buy the products we want gives us a sense of fulfilment and joy.
  3. 3. However, danger can still lurk amid this supposedly enjoyable experience. One of these hazards is unknowingly taking home products that might be harmful to you and your loved ones.
  4. 4. According to an article published by Santa Clara University, 34 million individuals are harmed or killed because of product-related accidents. These types of injuries are the main culprits behind the deaths of people between one and 36 years of age, even outnumbering the number of fatalities resulting from heart disease or cancer.
  5. 5. The financial damages associated with these product-related injuries amount to $12 billion per year.
  6. 6. It’s not the end of the world if you or someone you love falls victim to these accidents. A seasoned personal injury attorney can represent you in court and get you the compensation that you deserve.
  7. 7. However, before it reaches this point, it pays to know possible harmful products that might find its way to your shopping bag the next time you go shopping.
  8. 8. Contaminated Beauty Products
  9. 9. In an interview with Today, esthetician Stacya Silverman narrated how she was victimized by a contaminated beauty product. At a spa convention, she won a bag of beauty products and one of the items inside the bag was an eye cream.
  10. 10. That same night, she used the cream, but instead of the expected soothing effect an eye cream should have, she felt her eyes burning and the skin around her eyes started to look like leather. Stacya said she looked like a lizard for five days.
  11. 11. While the FDA has regulatory and monitoring mechanisms in place to prevent this from happening, contaminated beauty products can still make their way to the market shelves. Don’t ignore warning signs, even the littlest ones – spots on a cream, slightly broken seal, etc.
  12. 12. Contaminated Food Products
  13. 13. It was not too long ago when Cadbury was forced to recall millions of its chocolate bars because of suspected salmonella contamination. Food is probably the easiest way for harmful things to enter your home.
  14. 14. Keep an eye on recalls and warnings, and if you think you have purchased an item that has been recalled, don’t delay checking your refrigerator or pantry shelves.
  15. 15. The same caution goes for pet food products. In the past few years there have been many recalls of dog food as well as dog treats that were made in China.
  16. 16. It’s a good idea to check online before you purchase a new type of dog food or treat, and to be safe occasionally check on the pet items you currently purchase.
  17. 17. Poorly Manufactured Footwear
  18. 18. Imagine yourself on your way to work. You feel proud and tall, especially because you are wearing your brand new pair of killer stilettos that you purchased during your last shopping spree.
  19. 19. Your office is one block away, but suddenly, you feel the earth under you go wobbly. Next thing you know, you’re on the ground, scowling in pain because you twisted your ankle.
  20. 20. It might be rare, but there are a lot of manufacturers out there who sell seemingly mundane things like footwear without any regard to good manufacturing practices.
  21. 21. From minor injuries to death – product-related accidents are more common than you think. As a consumer, it’s your duty to be vigilant and keep an eye out on these possibly harmful products.
  22. 22. However, if you reach the point that you have to fight it out in court, hiring a serious injury attorney is your best bet to get the justice and compensation you deserve.
  23. 23. If you believe you have been seriously harmed by a defective product, a personal injury attorney who handles product liability cases can help you obtain compensation.
  24. 24. The serious injury attorney at the Millea Law Firm, Matt Millea, will handle your case personally and ensure you are treated fairly.
