Multiple news reports are claiming that Trader Joe’s has just launched a recall that impacts certain products that could blow while being handled. Since this recall is associated with products that could expose consumers to injury risks, the recall was launched immediately after the company learned about the risk.
The Food and Drug Administration published the company’s press release reporting on the recall. According to the piece of document, recalled units include the Triple Ginger Brew bottles that were purchased between November 9 and December 14, 2015. All recalled units come with the SKU number 51857.
Since the company learned that unopened bottles had burst, the recall was deemed necessary.
The recalled units were sold at Trader Joe’s stores nationwide. The ginger brew listed under this recall come in 25.4 FL OZ glass bottles.
Customers with the recalled products should handle the devices with care and dispose of it immediately in an outside container. Consumers may contact Trader Joe’s to learn more about getting a refund.
While there were reported of the bottles bursting, no injuries were linked to the products. Recalled bottles of the Triple Ginger Brew should not remain in your possession if you’re concerned about the safety of your loved ones.
Too often, incidents associated with recalled products such as this involve injuries. As many consumers are often seriously injured due to issues associated with consumer products, they also suffer the medical consequences alone. Companies that ignore these incidents are often punished for their neglectful behavior. But consumers who choose to ignore the incidents fail to hold these neglectful companies accountable.
Whenever you’re involved in an incident associated with a consumer product, make sure to get the medical attention you require and, if necessary, reach out to an attorney to have your case reviewed.
