The Recent Example of a Claimed Food-Related Product Defect You Should Be Aware

Liability6

Out of all the products we purchase, those related to the food we eat are probably among those that we each have relatively high standards for. After all, being able to feed ourselves and our families is an imperative and non-optional part of daily life unlike electronics and the other pastime-related products that we purchase. Therefore, when food-related products fail and injuries result, the tragic consequences can be especially heightened.

What Example of Food-Related Product Legal Action Was Recently in the News?

A number of consumers across the country are reporting scary experiences with their cooking spray products. According to an article recently published by Local 10 News, multiple lawsuits have been filed against packaged food giant Conagra, the corporation that owns Pam and related cooking spray products, all of who allege that these cooking spray cans have exploded and caused serious injuries. The plaintiffs claim that they suffered severe burns when the cans of cooking spray erupted after being placed near a hot stove. In some cases, people said these explosions were so severe that they were disfigured and subsequently had to undergo surgeries and skin grafts.

Specifically, the lawsuits allege that the vented design of the limited edition can was defective and concurrently allege that Conagra failed to warn consumers about the potential explosion risks. On its part, Conagra has publicly stated that its products are safe and that the company is no longer producing the can design in question.

However, if it is later determined in a courtroom setting that the design was defective or that Conagra failed to properly warn consumers, the fact that this form of the product has been subsequently removed from the marketplace will not affect the liability this company would incur. Additionally, a spokeswoman for the Consumer Products Safety Commission has indicated that it is also researching the reports behind these lawsuits.

Who is Liable For This Type of Tragedy?

Generally speaking, a company is responsible for the products it places on the market for consumers to purchase and utilize. Everything from televisions to furniture to cars constitute products – and obviously this also encompasses food-related products such as cooking spray. And if you or a loved one is harmed as the result of a defective design or manufacturing defect in a product, the company who placed the product into the marketplace will likely be held responsible.
