On May 13, 2009, the Chicago City Council passed legislation that effectively bans BPA plastic commonly used in baby bottles due to potential products liability associated with the product.
Our firm’s personal injury attorneys in San Diego believe that manufacturers and government organizations, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), should be in charge of preventing products that cause personal injury—such as pain and suffering—from reaching the consumers.
Hardened plastics typically use the chemical compound bisphenol-A, or BPA, in products such as baby bottles. This chemical can seep into the contents of a plastic container and contaminate what is inside, like the milk found in baby bottles, which could cause children’s injuries or pain and suffering in a young child.
So far, BPA has been found to rapidly accelerate puberty and puts people at risk of personal injury, especially cancer. Other types of personal injuries have been linked to defective products that have BPA plastic in them, including heart disease and diabetes in adults.
Even so, how is it possible that the FDA has approved as safe for some defective products with BPA to be used by American consumers?
The personal injury attorneys at our San Diego law firm hope that the makers of defective products and organizations such as the FDA will take responsibility if a personal injury or wrongful death occurs due to negligence and product liability.
We want everyone to feel safe in the products they use and not at risk for pain and suffering because a product liability slipped through the cracks.
