Defective products lawsuit filed against Bristol-Myers

Abilify is a prescription medicine that is used by many Texas residents and others around the country in treatment of numerous mental illnesses, such as depression and schizophrenia. It is also prescribed to combat certain symptoms of autism. Unfortunately, the use of the drug led to various unexpected behaviors in some of its consumers.

Did FDA actions lead to Bayer removing Essure from U.S. market?

More than likely, Bayer, the Food and Drug Administration, and doctors all had high hopes for Essure, a non-surgical, permanent method of birth control after its release into the U.S. market back in 2002.

Fireworks are synonymous with the Fourth of July holiday in Texas and elsewhere around the country.

Is danger lurking in your child's toy box?

Buying toys for their children is a basic pleasure most Texas parents would say they enjoy. Perhaps you reserve such purchases for birthdays, Christmas or other special occasions.

Regardless who buys a toy, if it winds up in your child's hands, you have the right to reasonably expect that appropriate parties took all measures to ensure your child's safety when using it.

Defective products: Goodyear investigated for faulty tire

A trip in a motorhome to a major theme park sounds like a wonderful getaway for families in Texas or elsewhere in the country. Certainly, a traveler in this type of vehicle wants to reach the destination safely and return home without incident.

An official investigation may finally be coming after two decades of settlements and attempts by a major company to keep documentation confidential.

Defective products: Britax sued by CPSC over faulty strollers

Children's products have some of the most stringent safety regulations surrounding them. Parents in Texas and elsewhere around the nation pay close attention when news come out about defective products they may be using for their children.

However, a major manufacturer of various childcare products has refused to issue a recall for one of its items, thus prompting a complaint from a government organization.

Are potty seats defective products? One from Target seems to be

Residents of Texas have the right to expect any products they purchase to be free from safety risks or at least to come with reasonable warnings of any hazards. Far more important, perhaps, is ensuring that items manufactured specifically for use by children and easily available for purchase at the retail giant Target pose no danger. One would expect any defective products -- especially those that endanger children -- would be immediately pulled from store shelves.
