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.

The irony is that some people use electronic vaporizers because they were told they are safer than smoking cigarettes. However, recent events are changing people's minds. So far, over 100 incidents of e-cigs exploding have been made public. Some believe that number may be a low estimate and that many others in Texas and elsewhere have not reported their injuries from the defective product.
The beleaguered Samsung Corporation is facing yet another disaster. After dealing with reports that its top model cell phones were exploding and catching fire, Samsung issued a massive recall and lost millions replacing the defective product.
