Over 80,000 pounds of beef recalled in the US

A meat processing company in Minnesota recently issued a recall of approximately 89,568 pounds of beef patties after an inspection revealed that some products contained wood debris, the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service stated on January 4.

In the Class II Recall submitted to federal authorities, the “Sam’s Choice Black Angus Beef Patties with Vidalia Onion” packed in two pound containers may possibly be contaminated with “extraneous wood materials.” The issue was discovered during the production stage. Neither the recalling company, Huisken Meat, nor the FSIS have received any reports of illnesses or injuries involving the affected beef patties. Consumers are warned not to eat the recalled products and to throw them away or take them back to the store for a refund as soon as possible.

1.9M pounds of chicken products recalled for bacterial contamination

A poultry company in Illinois issued a recall of almost two million pounds of chicken products in the U.S. after some people fell ill with Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) bacteria, the Food Safety and Inspection Service reported on July 15.

Reports said Aspen Foods is recalling an estimated 1,978,680 lbs of chicken products after federal agencies in June were notified of three incidents of SE bacterial contamination in Minnesota. At least 19 brands of Aspen chicken products made from April to July were distributed nationwide. Consumers, mostly those with weak immune systems, are at high risk of suffering symptoms of salmonellosis, which includes fever, diarrhea, and stomach pain, from eating foods contaminated with SE bacteria.

Thousands of Beats compact speakers recalled for fire risk

An estimated 222,000 Beats compact speakers in the U.S. are being recalled after complaints were received of overheating, one of which resulted in minor injury, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported on June 3.

Recall documents revealed that the battery of the Beats Pill XL speakers may overheat and eventually may cause fire. California-based Apple Inc. was notified of eight overheating incidents, and one resulted in a burnt finger and property damage. The recalled speakers, which are shaped like a pill capsule, were imported by Apple and Beats Electronics LLC from China, where they were produced. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advised consumers to refrain from using the speakers and to call Apple Inc. for a refund.

Trek recalls 998,000 bikes over quick-release lever defect

Trek Bicycle Corporation recently issued a recall of 998,000 bicycles in the U.S. and Canada after two riders were injured and another one was permanently paralyzed, Tech Times stated on April 22.

According to Trek the 2000-2015 model bikes that are affected by the recall have a front tire quick-release lever that may suddenly swing and get caught to the front disc brake. If that happens, the bike can suddenly stop or cause the rider to lose control. Trek is urging owners of recalled bikes to have their bikes inspected for free. Bike retailers will also change the front quick-release lever for free. Customers will also receive a $20 coupon that may be used to purchase any Bontrager product, redeemable until December 31, 2015.

The West Palm Beach legal team of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A., understands that many people can no longer continue working after suffering injuries caused by defective products.

Trek recalls one million bikes following injury

Trek, a popular bicycle manufacturing company based in Wisconsin, has recently announced a recall of 900,000 bikes in the United States and another 98,000 in Canada. The recall is due to a dangerous defect that has so far caused three different accidents, resulting in injuries and one paralysis.

The defect lies in the quick release lever installed on the front wheel of many Trek bikes. The lever has a tendency to over-rotate and get caught in the disc brakes, locking up the front wheel and hurling riders over the handlebars.

The recall covers all bike models with the lever and disc brakes manufactured between the years of 2000 and 2015. The recall obviously covers bikes manufactured within a large length of time, but while the problem has apparently persisted for a number of years, Trek claims not to have known about the issue until recently.

It is the responsibility of bike manufacturing companies to ensure that their products are safe before making it into the hands of consumers. If you or someone you love has been injured due to a defective product, a product liability lawyer of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A. can help.
