Sara Lee Recalls Bread due to Broken Glass

As a consumer. you have a reasonable expectation for a product to be safe for you and your family. When the manufacturer of that product issues a recall, it can cause you to almost panic, wondering if your family was in potential danger because of a mistake made.

KSDK reports that Sara Lee, the popular maker of many brands of bread and other baked products, has recalled certain bread products after small pieces of glass were found on the outside of the bread by consumers. The recall, issued on August 26 by Bimbo Bakeries USA, said that fragments of glass from a broken light bulb at one of their bakeries contaminated some of the bread products. While no injuries were reported, consumers who bought bread within the recall, which effected 11 states, can return it for a full refund.

Product liability laws are in place to hold a manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer responsible for injuries from that product. Every year, defective products cause 29.4 million injuries and 21,400 deaths. In the United States, it is estimated that $700 billion a year is spent on injuries, deaths and property damage caused from consumer property incidents. Almost every product available is subject to product liability laws.
