Can a crib or a stroller be a dangerous product? Study says maybe

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.

Is the Nutribullet a dangerous product? Lawsuits indicate yes

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.

Car companies allegedly used defective product despite known risk

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.

Common Texas playground surface material may be dangerous product

Texas playgrounds and many other school and public play areas across the nation have been outfitted with a surface made from ground-up tires. The substance, known as rubber mulch or tire crumbs, is supposed to provide a softer surface to protect kids in case of falls. Many parents, however, are now claiming that the dangerous product is exposing their children to toxins.

Samsung appliance declared a dangerous product after injuring 9

Many, if not most homes in Texas and across the United States contain a washing machine. How frustrating would it be, though, to have paid for such an expensive home appliance and then not be able to use it? This is the issue that many consumers of a Samsung washing machine are now facing, afraid to use the dangerous product despite the company's promise to repair it.

Injured vapers say e-cig is a defective product

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.

Samsung recalls another defective product after reported injuries

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. Just as that story began to fade from headlines, another Samsung product is allegedly putting people at risk, including a woman in Texas.

FDA alerts parents to dangerous product for teething symptoms

Recently, the Food and Drug Administration was alerted to reports of serious reactions in small children after consuming a product marketed to relieve symptoms of teething. Several children and infants were said to have suffered seizures after using teething tablets or gels sold over the counter as homeopathic remedies. The FDA has warned parents in Texas and across the country to stop using the dangerous product and discard it immediately.

Death due to defective product often mislabeled in FDA report

Manufacturers of medical devices are required to send reports to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration if patients' deaths are related to the use of the devices. The FDA leaves it up to the manufacturer to decide if a death was connected to the product. However, recent investigations show that sometimes a manufacturer will misclassify a death to lower the priority of the report. When this happens, patients in Texas may not have enough information to protect themselves from a defective product.

Defective product in airbags is causing injury and death

For over a year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been investigating reports of injuries and fatalities caused by exploding airbags. The explosions are caused by a malfunction in the inflation system of the airbags. Recently the NHTSA has expanded its inquiry to include a second manufacturer of the inflators, and motorists in Texas and around the world are impacted by this defective product.
