Fisher-Price sleeps are the subject of a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warning after at least 13 deaths in the company’s infant rockers

This warning directed to parents and caregivers clearly states that an infant should not be left unsupervised, unrestrained, or sleeping in any incline infant product.  This is pretty much an impossible task for a parent which makes you wonder why the CPSC allows the product to remain on the market.

Fisher-Price and Infant Suffocation

Our lawyers are handling Jif Peanut Butter recall lawsuits in all 50 states.  Our law firm is focused exclusively on injury claims from salmonella poisoning.

JM Smucker Co. was recently forced to initiate a massive recall of its Jif Peanut Butter products after the FDA traced an outbreak of salmonella to one of the company’s plants in Kentucky.

If you were exposed to salmonella from Jif peanut butter products (or other products that contained Jif peanut butter) and suffered adverse health effects, you may be able to file a Jif recall lawsuit and get financial compensation for your injuries.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a public notice to health care providers and patients that certain hemodialysis machines manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care may be exposing users to toxic chemicals. Exposure to these toxins could cause patients to suffer neurologic conditions and hormone disorders. Our firm is not evaluating potential lawsuits against Fresenius by individuals who were harmed by this issue.

Fresenius Dialysis Machines May Expose Users to Toxic Chemicals

In a public notice letter dated May 6, 2022, the FDA announced that a handful of hemodialysis devices manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care could potentially be exposing users to toxic chemicals, including non-dioxin-like PCBAs (polychlorinated biphenyl acids) and NDL PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls).

Reglan is a pharmaceutical drug used to combat heartburn and slow gastric emptying in diabetes patients. The question is whether tardive dyskinesia (also known as TD), a neurological disorder with symptoms including repeated involuntary movements, is connected to Reglan use.

Below is a question and answer for about the Reglan lawsuits. This will read a little odd in places because much of it was written thirteen years ago. But it has 2022 additions as well, including a discussion of the possibility of a new Reglan lawsuit over the undisclosed stroke risk.

What Is Reglan?

Our Exactech hip replacement lawyers are handling recall lawsuits in all 50 states.  This page is about the Connexion GXL liner recall.  I talk about who is eligible for Exactech recall lawsuit and I speculate on potential settlement amounts in these cases based on prior hip replacement lawsuits.

Exactech Connexion GXL Recall

The surgical implant company Exactech has launched a recall of most of its hip replacement implant systems that use the Connexion GXL plastic liner. The hip implants are being recalled because the Connexion GXL plastic insert has a significant defect that is causing abnormally high early failure rates for the Exactech hip replacements. Anyone who has an Exactech artificial hip with the Connexion GXL liner and experiences a premature failure could be entitled to financial compensation for their pain and medical expenses.

chantix heart attack lawsuit

Note: At the bottom of this 11-year-old post is new 2022 information on the new Chantix cancer class action lawsuit. 

Add Heart Attack and Stroke (and Cancer in 2022) to the Long List of Problems Reported by Chantix Users

With powerful evidence from a new Chantix study, heart attacks and strokes have been added to the potential risks associated with Chantix.

Chantix Lawsuits

Chantix has been a controversial drug from day one and consumer advocates have long been pushing for its removal from the very beginning. It has been associated with many side effects, including increased risk for aggressive and suicidal behavior, diabetes, and a host of other ailments.   The warning label was eventually changed on the risk of suicide and suicidal ideations (and later changed back with an acknowledgment of psychiatric events that have occurred with people on Chantix).

Some consumer complaints have been proven, some have been disproven, and the jury is still out on others. But now the data is showing something else new that Pfizer will also probably ignore: Chantix increases the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Knee replacement and knee implant lawsuits allege that devices loosened or did not last as long as they should.  Zimmer faced over 15,000 Biomet lawsuits over its NexGen implant. DePuy Synthes Attune Knee implant lawsuits were also a big thing.  Now Exactech recall lawsuits will be getting filed in massive numbers in 2022 after a big recall.

There have been a lot of questions about hip and knee replacements in recent years. DePuy, Exactech, Stryker, and Zimmer have had – to put it mildly – concerns raised about their products. These companies would argue that the problems are mostly with patients who are having bad outcomes and blaming the insurance companies.

In June of last year, millions of Philips CPAP and BiPAP sleeping machines were recalled after the company acknowledged that sound abatement foam in the devices was breaking down and causing users to inhale toxic chemicals.

The sweeping recall immediately prompted a wave of CPAP lawsuits. The early plaintiffs in these cases claimed that the recalled devices caused a variety of different health problems including asthma, throat tumors, and general respiratory irritation.

CPAP and Liver Cancer, Kidney Cancer, and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

In this post, we will provide a status update on what’s happening in the Atrium C-Qur hernia mesh litigation.

The Atrium hernia mesh MDL (Atrium Medical Corp. C-Qur Mesh Products Liability Litigation 16-md-2753) has over 2,500 cases consolidated in the U.S. District Court for New Hampshire. This is the smallest of the three hernia mesh MDLs that are currently pending around the country.

The Atrium C-Qur Mesh Backstory
