Children's liquid medications recalled for possible contamination

Arizona parents who have given their child certain liquid vitamins or medications may be interested in information about a recall by the Food and Drug Administration. It was ordered on Aug. 10 due to possible contamination. The products involved in the recall are manufactured by PharmaTech and include dietary supplements and medications that are made for young children. The FDA alerted distributors of the products after a PharmaTech product was suspected of being contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia. The product was connected to reports of severe adverse events in patients who were diagnosed with the infection.

Power steering problem prompts recall of 2014 model GM trucks

A software problem in over 690,000 trucks has resulted in General Motors issuing a recall. Vehicles affected by the recall include the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra from the 2014 model year. Information published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explained that the software could spontaneously cease sending electrical power to the power steering for roughly one second.

Millions of defective air bag inflators still on the road

Arizona drivers may be owners of some of the 21 million vehicles that have Takata air bag inflators and that have been recalled. As of March 31, however, it was reported that 10 million of the devices that have a severe risk of rupturing and causing serious injuries are still in use. As such, it is not expected that the 10 automakers who installed these dangerous inflators will have the recalls completed by the Dec. 31 deadline originally imposed by the federal government.

Takata expands airbag recall

Arizona motorists might be affected by the expansion of Takata's airbag recall. Already managing one of the largest airbag recalls in automotive history, the company has found possible faults in an additional 2.7 million vehicles from Ford, Nissan and Mazda. There is the possibility of serious injury or death if the defect is not corrected.

Automakers agree to settle lawsuit

Arizona residents may have heard that Toyota and three other car companies have reached a proposed settlement involving millions of owners impacted by the Takata airbag recall. Documents were filed in a Miami federal court that indicate the settlement will be worth $553 million. The money would be used to compensate owners of the recalled vehicles as well as increase efforts to repair those vehicles.

Multiple parties could be liable for robot-caused injuries

Robotic machines play an increasing role in many Arizona workplaces. When robots malfunction, injuries can result, and the people harmed by the machines might have a personal injury or products liability claim that involves multiple parties, including the manufacturer of the robot, the programmer, operators or maintenance technicians.

Supreme Court opens door for new wave of GM lawsuits

Arizona residents may be aware that General Motors has been ordered to pay criminal fines and civil damages of about $2 billion due to a defective ignition switch that has been connected with more than 100 deaths. GM continues to face litigation over the defective switches, and the U.S. Supreme Court opened the door to a new wave of lawsuits on April 24. The Detroit-based car maker had hoped to appeal a New York federal court's decision to allow the lawsuits to move forward, but the nation's highest court has declined to review that ruling.
