Earlier this month a national recall was made by the cigarette company Lorillard Inc. This company is conducting a full-scale recall of several packs of non-menthol versions of their Newport brand cigarettes. In the event of serious injuries due to a defective or dangerous product, meet with a New York personal injury lawyer to file a defective product claim. Lorillard is recalling the non-menthol Newport cigarettes because there is evidence that displays traces and even small pieces of plastic mixed inside the cigarettes with the tobacco. As the nation’s 3rd-largest tobacco distribution company, Lorillard announced the recall earlier this month immediately after the report of foreign substances in their product. As a product that ships nationwide, this recall affects the national population with potential plastic contamination. A company representative said that the risks associated with the recalled product include respiratory discomfort and potential irritation. At this time it is unclear exactly how many defective packs were distributed. If a recalled defective product affects you it may be in your best interest to contact a New York personal injury lawyer who can review your case to see if you have a defective product claim worth pursuing. For example, this specific case includes outside contaminants in cigarettes, not side effects from smoking in general.
