Candy: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:36 by admin
Candy is a popular treat for children and adults alike. However, some types of candy are composed of materials that may increase the chance of choking.

For instance, recently the Food & Drug Administration issued a warning regarding conjac jelly cups imported from Asia and their tendency to cause choking. In addition, the Taiwanese manufacturer of the Lychee Flavor Mini Gel Snacks, Sheng Hsiang Jen Foods Co., was hit with a non-binding arbitration settlement of nearly $25 million in a negligence lawsuit brought by the family of an 11-year-old girl who allegedly choked on the snack, causing brain damage and putting her in a vegetative state.

If you or your child have suffered an injury after ingesting candy, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
