A nationwide recall has been issued for a baby jumper after dozens of children were injured due to a defect in one of the product's attached toys. The object can snap back too hard and harm the infant while he or she is playing with it, according to the U.S. Consumer Production Safety Commission.
Even more of a line of pet food products manufactured by a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble Co. is now being recalled over salmonella fears. Dog and cat owners in Wilmington may have heard about the recall of Natura Pet Products pet foods. Readers may also be justified in wondering when P&G is going to get the salmonella problems under control.
Defective products are sold in North Carolina every year, and unfortunately, some of these defective products lead to serious and fatal injuries. Consumer product safety advocates want foreign manufacturers to stop selling unsafe and defective products in the U.S. but it is difficult for foreign companies to be held liable for selling defective products due to the difficulty of bringing foreign manufacturers to court in the U.S. for defective products.
