Tainted Male Enhancement Supplements


The FDA has issued a warning regarding Happy Passengers, an herbal male enhancement pill. According to the FDA, Happy Passengers – which is available online and at many natural food stores – contains sildenafil, the active ingredient found in Viagra®. Sildenafil is known to interact with nitrates in prescription medications and can lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.
Happy Passengers and many other herbal alternatives to Viagra are marketed as being safe for men with high blood pressure and heart disease. However, when these formulas are themselves enhanced with sildenafil, they pose the same health risks as Viagra.
When a supplement manufacturer fails to disclose active ingredients or intentionally misleads consumers, tragic injury often occurs. If you have been injured after taking a supplement that made false safety claims or contained ingredients that were not disclosed, you may be entitled to seek compensation though a product liability lawsuit. The best way to learn if you have cause to file suit is through a free consultation with one of the experienced personal injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm.

Supplement Manufacturer Closes Following FDA Probe


A supplement manufacturer in California has agreed to discontinue its operations following an FDA investigation in which several violations of state and federal guidelines were found. The company, Health One Pharmaceuticals Inc., has also agreed to recall and destroy all of the dietary supplements it has sold since 2011.
The supplements in question claimed to treat allergies, cancer, and diabetes. Ingredients, however, were neither overseen nor included on the label, and finished batches were not tested for purity or consistency.
erbal medications are not overseen by the FDA and do not have to provide evidence for claims made on their packaging. They do have to provide a list of ingredients and meet strict testing requirements. Due to the unknown health risks associated with many herbal supplements, it is important that you discuss their use with your physician before you start taking one.
f you have suffered injury after taking an herbal supplement, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your damages. The best way to determine if you have cause to file suit is through a one-on-one consultation with an experienced product liability attorney.

Pregnancy Discrimination


A jury in California has awarded a former AutoZone employee $185 million for discrimination she faced at work while pregnant. The jury found that the discrimination against this employee was systemic – extending all the way to the corporate office – and therefore deserving a settlement that helped set future corporate policy.
As with many other forms of workplace sexual harassment, this employee was better served by taking legal action than trying to solve things on her own. Many corporations have shown a willingness to dismiss or further harass and humiliate employees who step forward, making it necessary to seek legal representation as soon as possible following any type of workplace discrimination.
The experienced employment law attorneys at The Cochran Firm strongly believe that everyone is deserving of a safe and fair work environment. If you believe your rights have been violated or if you have faced harassment based on your sex, gender, or any other reason, we are here to take your case, protect your rights, and help ensure that justice is served.
To schedule your free consultation with one of our sexual harassment attorneys, please contact The Cochran Firm today. We maintain offices throughout the country to provide legal representation for workers across the nation.

Chrysler Expands Recall


Like Honda before them, Chrysler has announce an expansion of its recall for vehicles equipped with Takata airbags. Adding nearly 281,000 vehicles to the recall list, Chrysler maintains no injuries have been reported due to this particular airbag defect. The company holds that its recall of what is now more than 617,500 vehicles is precautionary only.
If you have been notified by Chrysler or another auto manufacturer of a recall, be sure to visit your local dealership for recommended repairs. There should be no charge for fixing defects, even if the car is no longer under warranty.
Remember, recalls may help prevent legal action, but are not a shield against liability when a defective vehicle causes injury or death.

Our experienced attorneys focus on helping those injured by negligent companies get fair treatment and full compensation. We would be happy to meet with you free of charge to discuss your case and help you better understand all of your options.

Honda Expands Recall


Honda has recalled an additional three million vehicles due to the risks associated with Takata airbags. Exploding airbag deflators manufactured by Takata are blamed for at least five deaths in the United States. Honda, Takata’s biggest customer, continues to recall vehicles that may be impacted by this problem.
It is important to remember that a recall does not waive a company’s liability when defective products cause harm.
