Plastic in hamburger buns could lead to product liability claims

On Behalf of | Sep 26, 2019 | Product Liability

Because most people do not have the time, skills or means to make everything they need in life, they purchase items from stores. While the majority of products are useful and safe, there are instances in which issues with a particular product could pose serious risks to consumers. In fact, if foreign objects end up in food items, consumers may have reason to file product liability claims.

Ohio residents may be interested in a recent recall issued by Conagra Brands. According to reports, during the production of Udi’s classic hamburger buns, a dough scraper was somehow mixed in with the rest of the product. As a result, there is a chance that white bits of plastic could be found in the buns used by consumers.

This issue could pose a number of serious hazards, including a choking risk, and individuals who have purchased this product should throw them out or return them to the store. It was noted that the product was sold throughout the United States. It did not appear that any injuries or other harm had been reported in relation to eating the products.

It can certainly be jarring to find something in one’s food that should not be there. In worst-case scenarios, that jarring feeling may only be the precursor to a serious situation. If a person suffers injuries due to consuming a foreign object in a prepackaged product, there may be reason to take legal action. Ohio residents who believe they or a loved one has been the victim of such an incident may want to learn more about product liability.
