Popular Carpet Cleaner Recalled Due to Health Hazard
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
The Milliken Company has
recalled over 550,000 popular powdered carpet cleaner due to the possibility of
harmful bacteria in the containers. The recall includes Arm & Hammer,
Capture, Oreck, Resista, Riccar and Healthy Home dry carpet cleaners.
The company reported that exposure to the bacteria could pose a risk of
respiratory and other infections in individuals with compromised immune
systems. These were sold at Home Depot, Lows, Menards, Walmart, Oreck
and specialty carpet and vacuum stores across the nation from July 2015
through September 2016. The company recommends that consumers stop using
the recalled product and contact the company directly for a free replacement.
Product liability laws are in place to help protect each consumer from
faulty or dangerous products. Each company carries a responsibility to
manufacture and distribute safe products to their consumers. There are
thousands of recalls each year that affect consumer products, food, vehicles
and more. It is always important to follow the recall and follow the steps
that the company suggests. However, many consumers can be injured or sickened
by a recalled product. If you or someone you know has been affected by
a recalled product it is important to contact a product liability attorney.
An experienced attorney can determine if you have grounds to pursue a
case against the liable company. An attorney can also help recover any
damages that have ensued due to the recalled product and any compensation
for medical bills and lost time wages.
