Decorative Wine Boxes Recalled Due Mold Hazard
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Schurman Retail Group recalls their VIVID red Wine Crush decorative gift
boxes that are made with metallic paper coverings due to possible
mold contamination. These boxes come packaged in clear cellophane and have
“VIVID handmade” on the bottom written in gold ink. These
were sold at Paper Destiny, Carlton Cards Stores, and PAPYRUS in October
2016. The mold that may be present can cause respiratory or other infections
to individuals who have damaged lungs or an allergy to mold. There have
been nine reports of irritation, and the company has recalled around 8,400
boxes. The company is prompting consumers to stop using the recalled product
and return the items for a full refund or visit their website for return
Thousands of products are recalled each year due to defective parts, contamination,
fire and choking hazards or lacerations, to name a few. Each recall means
there is a threat that a consumer can be harmed. Luckily, product liability
laws are put in place to help protect consumers from faulty or damaged
products and help hold the companies liable for any injuries they may
cause. Sometimes these products can be returned for a refund or replacement.
Other times, the products can harm consumers and cause minor to severe
injuries. In any case, anyone injured due to a faulty or defective product
should contact a product liability attorney. An experienced attorney can
assess the claim and determine if you have grounds to pursue legal action
for your injuries.
