There have been a number of food recalls lately across the United States. If you have recently purchased food that has been recalled, what do you do next? The first step is to remain calm. Most likely the recall is for something relatively minor, and the chances of getting sick are very low. If you do get sick or injured due to recalled food, contact a local lawyer in West Jordan, Utah for assistance today.
MAKE SURE YOUR FOOD HAS ACTUALLY BEEN RECALLED
Once you hear that a product you bought at your local West Jordan supermarket has been recalled, make sure the recalled product exactly matches your recent purchase. Many times recalls are issued for a specific food item that was distributed during a specific period of time. If the date or the size of package differs from the information listed on the recall, you can continue to eat your food product without worries.
HOW TO RETURN YOUR FOOD ITEM
Take your receipt to the same store in West Jordan from which you purchased the item and they will gladly return or replace it. Once the product has been returned to store, the store will either return the item to the manufacture or destroy it.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET SICK
If you do get sick after eating a recalled product, go to the doctor and make sure that you are in good health. Many times either the store or the manufacture will try to make the situation right, and will offer to pay for any health expenses.
Food being recalled is something that happens on occasion — and it’s important to be prepared. Most likely you will never hear of a wrongful death from a food recall. In case anything does happen, we have a lawyer on hand that is ready to help make sure the manufacturer gives you everything you deserve.
HOW SAFE ARE SMALL CARS?
From Salt Lake City to the most remote of cities out on the East Coast, with so many different automotive options available to the common car shopper, it can be difficult to know what to do. While make and model are obviously important, vehicle size is also something worth taking into consideration.
Though larger vehicles tend to not be as fuel efficient, smaller vehicles are seen as dangerous, due to their size. Truthfully, as far as the latter is concerned, it’s for this very reason that many consumers—and a lawyer or two, for that matter—shy away from smaller vehicles. With that in mind, just how safe are small cars?
Fortunately for us, the results of any and all government auto accident tests are made readily available on the Internet. By way of a quick comparison, it’s easy to determine which of all vehicle sizes is best for families.
Take the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), for example. Each test the aforementioned agency conducts examines four crash types: front-impact, side-impact and rollover rates.
Reportedly, according to AutoTrader.com, “The tiny Honda Fit, for instance, earns four overall stars—the same rating as the large Ford Expedition. And the subcompact Chevrolet Sonic’s 5-star rating actually trumps crash-test scores for Chevrolet’s large Suburban SUV, which attained only four stars.”
Furthermore, unbeknownst to many, smaller vehicles actually run a lower risk of rolling over in the event of an auto accident. While the height of smaller vehicles causes concern here in Salt Lake City and elsewhere, generally speaking, airbags and crumple zones are able to compensate. However, if anything unjust ever does arise, never hesitate to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
