Another Recall To Worry About
We have learned that Vienna Beef Ltd. is recalling a little more than 2,000 pounds of the beef links that so many of us have in our pantry. The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement on May 18.
They say that the food being recalled was produced on May 2 and it could contain metal. While there has been no adverse consumer effects reported as of this writing, the USDA is encouraging anyone with these products to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
When we talk about defective products, many people do not think about food as being defective. However, foods are among the most commonly recalled items in the US. In this case, the metal probably got into the product due to a broken piece of the assembly line. However, we know that most manufacturers have a metal detector in place to check products for incidents like these and we wonder why this was not detected earlier.
If you go to the government website that tracks all current recalls in the US, you may be surprised to see so many items there. No industry is spared. You will find recalls when it comes to:
- Food and beverages
- Medical devices
- Cleaning supplies
- Car seats
- And more
Look through the recall list and you will find that the problems with defective products go well beyond what we hear about on the nightly news. We know that these problems are often due to:
Regardless of how a product becomes defective, companies and manufacturers need to be held accountable if a consumer is injured.
