It seems that the entire world is battery operated these days. Laptop computers, cell phones, electric vehicles and any number of other items in Tennessee such as hoverboards and scooters are all powered by batteries. Most of these items run on what are believed to be efficient and long-lasting lithium-ion batteries. Many of these are purchased on Amazon, and the safety and quality of the battery being sold may be in doubt. The batteries purchased may indeed be dangerous products.
Standing in line at the deli counter to order lunch meats is something shoppers do many times a day in Tennessee and all over the country. Unfortunately, the products that they rely on to provide lunches for family members may cause their family members to become ill. A recent listeria outbreak has been linked to deli meats and cheeses that have caused them to be considered potentially dangerous products.
Consumers in Tennessee should be able to expect that the food they purchase from the grocery store is safe for them and their families. Unfortunately, as recent recalls have demonstrated, food items can be dangerous products. Fresh cut fruit that was distributed to a number of states recently sickened nearly 100 people. While there have been no reports of illness in Tennessee, the salmonella-tainted fruit was also distributed to the state.
Welcoming a new baby into the world can be one of the most joyous times in a young couple's life in Tennessee. In preparing for the new arrival any number of purchases may be made to ensure that the new bundle of joy can start a new life in comfort and safety. Fisher Price has long been respected as a brand name in baby supplies. Sadly, one of its very popular products, the Rock 'n Play, has been deemed hazardous and is among items considered to be dangerous products.
There has been much said and written concerning the safety of many aspects of the nation's food supply. As concerns have mounted in Tennessee over the presence of antibiotics in meat the trend to organic products has grown as nonorganics have come to be seen as dangerous products. Another area of concern has to do with dairy foods, particularly the perceived benefits of raw milk. The dangers of consuming raw milk may outweigh any possible benefits.
Smoking rates among teens have been falling for several years in Tennessee and around the nation. The concern over teen smoking was replaced by increased drug use by teens. While that is certainly still a concern, more dangerous products have entered the landscape, and their use is spreading rapidly. The substance used is nicotine in a different form.
It is widely understood in Tennessee and elsewhere that smoking cigarettes is harmful to one's health. And while smoking tobacco products has declined across the general population in recent years, a new trend is causing concern regarding increased nicotine dependency, particularly in young people. The use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) is on the rise among middle and high school students, and they are considered dangerous products. The most popular forms of ENDS are known as vapes and JUULs. JUUls in particular are a concern because they are very small, about the size of a thumb drive, and produce little steam making them easy to conceal, even in the classroom.
The holiday season is a popular time for cooking and baking as families gather to enjoy each other's company and celebrate the holidays in Tennessee. This year, some of those celebrations may be marred by illness caused by food borne bacteria resulting from dangerous products. Ground turkey is believed to be the culprit.
Thanksgiving is upon us and so turkey consumption is way up in Tennessee. This does not make this the ideal time for a large recall of turkey products, but Jennie-O has announced a recall of as many as 91,000 pounds of ground turkey because of a salmonella outbreak. While salmonella poisoning may be prevented by proper cooking and handling of raw poultry, the outbreak has nonetheless created dangerous products.
The holidays are upon us, and that means that home bakers are, or soon will be, baking cakes and cookies to share with family and friends. Many recipes start with pre-packaged cake mix as an ingredient. Duncan Hines, a popular brand, is currently the subject of a voluntary product recall. Dangerous products are subject to recall, and a number of Duncan Hines cake mixes are suspected as being the source of a salmonella outbreak. The cake mixes are distributed all over the country, including Tennessee.
