Possible peanut contamination leads to Promacta recall

Drug recalls can have a great impact on patients who count on the medications to help control and treat medical conditions. A recent recall might have some people wondering what happened. Novartis has announced that it is recalling some Promacta lots because it was potentially contaminated with peanut flour. Patients who rely on this drug should be especially careful if they have a peanut allergy since the drug could potentially cause an allergic reaction.

Products must have adequate warnings and instructions

As a consumer, you expect that the products you find on store shelves are going to be safe for you to use. While the vast majority of these are, there is a chance that you will come across a product that isn't safe. One thing that you should be able to count on when you are purchasing a product is that you will be able to read the instructions to learn about how to use the item safely. When these instructions and warnings aren't provided, there is a chance that you will be injured by the product.

Product liability claims can come from defective gifts

The Christmas season is here, which means that people will buy gifts for others. When you are shopping, you likely expect that the stores are only selling safe items. You don't want anyone to suffer an injury due to your gift. Unfortunately, products might seem safe when you purchase them but it is later discovered that there is something unsafe about it. We know this isn't what you want to happen, but you should be prepared if there is an unsafe gift exchanged.

Know the components of a product liability claim

Being harmed by any product, whether it is a toy, a power tool or something else, is a hard situation for anyone. You have to get the medical care that you need to ensure that you are going to be able to heal as well as possible from your injuries. On top of that, you might decide that you are going to seek compensation for the accident.
