Man Wins $7.2 Million Verdict For Lung Injury Due To Popcorn.

Wayne Watson, of Denver, Colorado, won his product liability suit against food companies Gilster-Mary Lee Corp., The Kroger Co. and Dillon Companies Inc., which produced the popcorn that allegedly caused Watson’s lung injuries.

Watson sued the companies soon after developing respiratory problems in 2007. Watson developed lung problems allegedly from inhaling the artificial butter smell which emanated from the popcorn produced by the defendant food companies. The artificial butter smell apparently caused Watson’s lung injuries.

Watson had previously settled his lawsuit against the artificial flavor developer FONA International Inc. for an undisclosed amount.

Watson argued during the trial that the artificial smell caused his personal injuries and that the food companies failed to warn him that the smell could cause a serious lung injury.

The food companies maintained that Watson developed lung problems after years of working with carpet cleaning chemicals.

The jury in the federal court in Denver, CO deliberated for one and a half days before awarding Watson $7.2 million in personal injury damages.

Woman Sues Pfizer Due To Birth Defects Caused By Zoloft.

Valentine Wolsey of Nevada has sued Pfizer because of birth defects suffered by her child after she used the antidepressant Zoloft during pregnancy.

Wolsey was instructed by her doctor to use Zoloft during her pregnancy, but now her child is suffering from multiple congenital cardiac birth defects.

Zoloft and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants have been linked to birth defects. Wolsey alleges that Pfizer should have known that Zoloft could cause birth defects by 2005, when her son was born.

Wolsey is seeking compensatory and punitive damages on several counts in her complaint filed in court, such as negligence and failure to warn.

Company Recalls Care Bears Pacifiers for Choking Hazard.

IDM Group LLC has recalled their entire line of Care Bears pacifiers, stating that they may pose a choking hazard to young children. 

The voluntary recall of 119,000 pacifiers comes after the IDM Group discovered that their pacifiers failed to meet federal safety standards.  The US Consumer Product Safety Commission maintains that the pacifier nipples can separate from the base, posing a choking danger to small children.

No personal injuries from the pacifiers have been reported as of yet, but the recall has been put in effect nonetheless as a precautionary measure.
