Toxic materials in school lunch allegedly sent girl to hospital

During a typical school day, most Ohio middle school students' thoughts are likely on their classwork or their social lives. One thing they are probably not thinking of is the chance that their school-provided lunch might contain toxic materials. In another state, however, this appears to be exactly what occurred.

Man files product liability suit after e-cig causes severe burns

Many Ohio residents are likely at least familiar with e-cigarettes; in fact, some may be vapers themselves. While manufacturers say the devices are intended to provide a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes, there is little federal regulation so far. Unfortunately, this also means that there isn't much oversight into safety protocols surrounding the devices and their component parts, and some are finding this translates into hazardous occurrences that leave users injured, as is the complaint in a recently filed product liability suit.

Study finds hair dyes contain potentially hazardous materials

Many Ohio consumers use a vast variety of beauty and hygiene products on a daily basis. Alarmingly, a recent study reveals that a number of these products may contain hazardous materials. In fact, the data reveals a possible link between hair dye and breast cancer.

Product liability suit alleges dangerous medical device design

Ohio patients who go in for surgery place their trust in the medical system to make their health better, not worse. A recently filed product liability lawsuit in another state alleges that a medical device did just that, however.

Gas station facing product liability suit over botulism in cheese

Consumers who stop at an Ohio gas station to grab nachos could be thinking about any number of things, like the hurry they're in or how hungry they are. One thing they are not likely considering, however, is their chance of contracting food poisoning from the snacks they purchase. In another state, a woman recently filed a product liability lawsuit after just such an occurrence.

Keurig facing product liability suit after $100,000 house fire

Many, if not most households across Ohio likely own a coffeemaker, as a common start to most mornings is waking up to make a nice, hot mug of coffee. This soothing ritual might be made far less enjoyable for many individuals with the knowledge that, in doing so, they could potentially be running the risk of injury from burns if their brewer was to catch on fire. In another state, this situation is exactly what a recent product liability lawsuit is alleging happened.

Monsanto facing lawsuit over toxic materials in Roundup

Roundup is a common herbicide used by consumers in Ohio and across the country. The active ingredient in this weed-killer is glyphosate, a chemical that Monsanto, the company who manufactures Roundup, has long touted as a technological breakthrough, alleging it kills essentially all weeds without harming the user or the environment. Unfortunately, a lawsuit filed last year claims that the opposite is true -- that the toxic materials contained within roundup led to the death of a 48-year-old man.

Toxic materials contained in common household products

With unintentional poisoning listed one of the leading causes of accidental injury in the U.S., Ohio families may want to familiarize themselves with some of the dangerous products that may be hiding in their homes. Most poisonings are preventable, but only if parents familiarize themselves with the toxic materials that sometimes lurk in common products. Some items may not carry adequate labels to warn of the hazardous chemicals contained within seemingly innocuous substances.

Couple sues, alleging toxic materials in flooring they purchased

In Ohio and across the United States, companies are required to comply with certain federal safety standards in regard to the products they sell.

To this end, a couple in another state recently filed a lawsuit, claiming that the flooring they purchased contains toxic materials.

NutriBullet involved in product liability suits after explosions

Even if they don't own one, residents of Ohio have most likely at least heard of the kitchen appliance known as the NutriBullet. Touted as being a small but powerful blender useful for making nutritious dishes, the device has become a staple in many health-conscious homes. However, the company that manufactures the device, NutriBullet LLC and several other companies involved with the NutriBullet's sale, manufacture and design are currently involved in a number of product liability suits after several users suffered injuries.
