Contaminated tomatoes lead to recall of ready-to-eat salads

by Administrator 6. May 2011 01:08

Read-to-eat salads sold at Safeways and Walmarts across Arizona were recently recalled due to the salads containing grape tomatoes that were found to be contaminated with the Salmonella bacteria.

The tomatoes were supplied by Six L's, which then notified the distributors of the tomatoes, Taylor Farms Pacific, that the tomatoes were contaminated. The FDA, along with Taylor Farms Pacific, announced the recall of the tomatoes and the read-to-eat salads containing them on Monday.

The Salmonella bacteria, if consumed, can cause diarrhea, cramps, and fever. The elderly and infants are particularly vulnerable to the effects of Salmonella, which can be life-threatening.

Consumers are advised to throw out any contaminated items and can find the full list of recalled items on the FSIS website, which routinely lists products that have been recalled.

If you or someone you love has suffered an illness after consuming a contaminated product, please contact the Phoenix toxic food product lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman, & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964.

Woman awarded $1.5 million by BCI Coca-Cola

by Administrator 29. April 2011 06:07

A woman from Arizona was recently awarded $1.5 million by BCI Coca-Cola Bottling Company. The woman filed a lawsuit against the company because it owned a leaking refrigerator that caused her to suffer an injury while shopping at a grocery store.

The woman was shopping at Fry's Food last year, when she slipped in the water that was leaking from the refrigerator. The lawsuit claims that the woman suffered permanent pain in her spinal cord because of the fall. The bottling company was sued, rather than the grocery store, because the refrigerator was found to have been leaking for several years without being replaced by the company.

The woman's attorneys initially asked for the company to pay $149,000 in a settlement. The company refused, and the case went to court. The jury awarded the woman $1.5 million in damages and medical expenses.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury after slipping at a store, please contact the Phoenix slip and fall attorneys of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964.

Georgia baseball player progresses in recovery after spinal cord injury

by Administrator 15. April 2011 03:27

A man from Georgia has been making progress at a rehabilitation center after suffering a spinal cord and neck injury that paralyzed him from the waist down.

The man was an outfielder for the University of Georgia's baseball team when, last month, he fractured his neck and spinal cord during a game. The injuries left the man unable to walk, however, doctors are now saying that the man's spinal cord damage is not permanent. They stated that the spinal cord is bruised but not broken, which means that there is the potential for a partial recovery.

The man recently regained feeling in the upper part of his body, and he will continue his stay at the rehabilitation center for at least two more weeks.

If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury, please contact the Phoenix spinal cord injury lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman, & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964.

High School Senior Wrongly Diagnosed with Cancer

by Administrator 8. April 2011 02:15

A high school senior from Indiana was recently given good news when he was told he did not have cancer. However, this good news came after being incorrectly diagnosed with bone cancer last year.

After the young man was diagnosed, he began chemotherapy in December. The treatment caused him to lose his hair, as well as become extremely thin for his 6-foot 3-inch frame. He also reported feeling extremely sick from the chemo.

The man learned that he never had cancer after going for a check-up last week. He was told that he had a cyst, not a tumor, and that it could be removed. The man underwent surgery to remove the cyst and is now recovering.

If you or someone you love has been incorrectly diagnosed with a disease or cancer, please contact the Phoenix wrong diagnosis lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman, & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Houston Rodeo

by Administrator 25. March 2011 05:34

A man recently died after falling from a roller coaster at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which has caused a wrongful death lawsuit to be filed by his family. An intense investigation is currently under way in order to determine the cause of the accident.

While some are already speculating that the man died of a heart attack or other medical problem while he was on the roller coaster, others are arguing that regardless of the cause of death, the roller coaster malfunctioned in that it did not properly restrain him. Officials are currently seeking to question anyone who was sitting around the man on the roller coaster.
