November 18, 2008, San Francisco, CA (JusticeNewsFlash.com)–Educated California products liability attorney, Mary Alexander, with the San Francisco law firm of Mary Alexander & Associates, agrees with the United States Food and Drug Administrations’ (FDA) recent nationwide alert. The FDA has confirmed reports of melamine, an industry chemical, in products containing milk such as frozen yogurt, instant coffee chocolates, and eggs and fish feed in China. Melamine which is used to make plastics and fertilizers has been added to milk products in China to increase the protein reading. Consuming large amounts can lead to kidney stones and death. Four Chinese infants have died while tens of thousands have been sickened. Melamine was also found in contaminated pet food last year that killed hundreds of U.S. pets.
Knowledgeable Bay Area products liability attorney, Alexander, urges consumers to consider the new FDA product safety alert. Avoid consuming the following products because of possible melamine contamination:
-Fresh and Crispy Jacobina Biscuits New!
-Koala’s March Crème filled Cookies
-YILI Brand Sour Milk Drink
-YILI Brand Pure Milk Drink

Informed California product liability victims’ rights advocate, Alexander, says American consumers injured by tainted and defective products have rights under state and federal legislative statutes. When a person has been injured due to a company’s wrong doing they may have a legal action against the manufacturer and may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and losses.
