Flour Found in Infant Baby Formula in Florida CVS
A Florida woman recently purchased a can of Enfamil baby formula from a CVS store, but says when she got it home she realized something was wrong with it. Alison Denning says the formula was pale colored and smelled like baking flour. She says the can of infant formula had the protective seal intact when she purchased it.
She says she then went to a different CVS and purchased another can of formula which appeared yellow and grainy. She reported the problem to CVS who immediately pulled Enfamil off its shelves nationwide. Enfamil hasn’t recalled the product as of yet.
Defective Product Injuries
Sadly, thousands of injuries are caused each year due to defective products. These products can range from defective airbags and vehicle recalls to hazardous toys and top-heavy furniture. If you or your loved one has been injured due to a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation from the designer or manufacturer or the product. You may also be eligible for damages from anyone else involved in the chain of distribution. Types of product liability claims may include any of the following:
Design Defects – This type of claim is based on the defective design of a product. The claim alleges that the design of the product alone made the product inherently dangerous. This may include, for example, a car that is top heavy in design and poses a risk of roll over and tip over accidents.
Manufacturing Defects – This is a common type of product liability claim. A manufacturing defect claim alleges that the product design was safe, but that something occurred while the product was being manufactured that resulted in an unsafe product.
Warning and Labeling Defects – This type of claim alleges that there was an inherent danger with the product and that the manufacturer failed to warn of the danger of the product. This type of claim is most common with prescription medications. If a patient takes a medication and has a side effect that wasn’t disclosed by the manufacturer, it could result in a product liability defect claim. Warning and labeling defects can be due to inadequate location of the warning, wording, or other circumstances in the manner in which the warning was delivered.
