Products liability news: Contaminated cookie dough recall spreads

Kraft Heinz Company recently announced that it is joining an ever growing list of companies by voluntarily recalling its Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae product due to contamination from Listeria monocytogenes.

This potential products liability issue has not resulted in any illnesses -- at least not that Kraft is aware of so far.

They decide to move them into a nursing home in the hopes that they will receive the care they need in order to enjoy the time they have left. Sadly, you cannot always judge a book by its cover, and sometimes, nursing home neglect is a carefully -- or not so carefully -- hidden secret.
