5 dangerous product recalls impacting Ohio In February

Shopping in today's world has become a risky endeavor. The news routinely contains reports of dangerous products and product recalls. This worries many families in Ohio and the rest of the nation because everyone wants to keep their loved ones safe.

Fortunately, it is not very difficult to find up-to-date lists of product recalls. The government's Consumer Product Safety Division maintains a current database of the latest dangerous product recalls. SafeKids.org also provides information about the latest child product recalls. Checking these and other databases can help you know which items are safe to purchase and which items should be avoided.

To help improve your awareness, here are five dangerous products recalled in February that were available to Ohio residents.

-- Smokeless tobacco products made by U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company and found to contain pieces of metal.

-- Noodle products sold at Whole Foods and possibly contaminated with listeria.

-- PetSmart adult dog food that was found to contain metal.

-- Sargento cheese products possibly contaminated with listeria.

-- Some Private Selection pies sold through Kroger that were mislabeled with inaccurate information about the presence of eggs and almonds.

Many times, dangerous products do not pose a serious health risk. However, some of these products could lead to fatalities or severe illness. Companies that manufacture products for consumer consumption have a duty to make sure the items they offer are safe. Anytime these companies fail to reasonably protect consumers, they could be targeted in a products liability lawsuit.

Talking with an experienced attorney can help sick victims or those who have lost a loved one to wrongful death hold the responsible parties accountable.
