For parents of infants in Texas and across the nation, there are certain products -- such as cribs and strollers -- that are essentially must-have items. Mothers and fathers may assume that these baby items go through rigorous testing to ensure their safety for babies, as a dangerous product may prove serious or even fatal to a very young child. Unfortunately, manufacturers seem all too frequently a bit lax in this regard, as every year over 66,000 young children end up in the emergency room after accidents involving dangerous products.
Dallas-area residents are probably at least familiar with the NutriBullet device, if they do not actually own one themselves. The powerful little blender, which is supposed to be a tool for making – among other dishes -- healthy smoothies, may in fact be a rather dangerous product. The NutriBullet manufacturing is facing a number of complaints after users have suffered severe burns.
A multi-vehicle crash that occurred on March 6 shut down Highway 380 in Texas for over six hours. The fatal accident killed two people and injured several others. Preliminary information indicates that troopers responded to the scene of the crash at around 2:16 p.m. that Monday afternoon to offer assistance and begin their investigation.
Residents of Dallas get into their cars and drive to work every day, trusting that if they get into a car accident, the air bags will help keep them safe. A civil lawsuit over a dangerous and defective product that has killed almost a dozen people indicates this belief may be misplaced. Recent court documentation suggests that not only was an overseas company aware that the air bags it manufactures were defective, but that the car companies that purchased them also knew yet continued to use them, ignoring the risks in favor of a greater profit margin.
