Potentially hazardous art paints recalled in the US

Approximately 2.8 million units of craft and art paints sold in the U.S. have been placed under a recall after the Consumer Product Safety Commission found indications that they can cause serious illness to consumers, according to a report filed on October 4.

Reports revealed that various paint products from Sargent Art can cause serious health conditions related to bacterial infection. Though the company and the CPSC have not identified the hazardous bacteria that contaminated the paints, they confirmed that individuals who have poor immune systems are likely affected. Sargent and federal authorities have not received any injuries that were linked to any of the 13 paint types covered. Consumers who have bought the recalled paints were advised not to use it and get in touch with the recalling company to get their money back. The paints were made available nationwide and some were distributed in Canada.

Contaminated products unfortunately can cause great financial loss to families when relatives fall ill as a result of using them. However, if this happens to you or to a loved one, a Georgetown product liability attorney from Evans Moore, LLC may be able to help. Call us today at (843) 995-5000 to find out how we may possibly help you recover after your loss.
