A recall doesn't necessarily require product to be removed

When many people in Philadelphia hear that a product has been recalled, they immediately stop using it, try to return it or look up information on what to do next. Those are all reasonable responses to a recall, which is generally only issued when a product has been deemed dangerous. So, it may come as a surprise to learn that hospitals may not always have the same approach, continuing to use defective medical products after they have been recalled. In fact, it may be even more shocking that even the most serious recall, a Class I recall, does not require a product to be pulled off shelves right away.

Home burglary ends up exposing child sex abuser

It is telling that inmates convicted of child sexual abuse must often be kept separate from other inmates for their own protection.

2 Pennsylvania bars to pay $6.6 million for drunk driving wreck

In 2010, a member of an East Stroudsburg bar’s softball team was celebrating with his teammates and friends. The bartender, a friend, was giving him some free shots.

Tips to protect your kids from unsafe toys and gifts this year

There’s good news from the Consumer Product Safety Commission this year: recalls involving unsafe toys are down, largely due to third-party testing requirements and more toys that violate safety standards being stopped at ports. Fewer toy recalls is good news, but it doesn’t mean no dangerous toys are sitting on store shelves.

Pope announces new commission on sexual abuse: Is it enough?

Since he took on the role some nine months ago, Pope Francis has proven to be exceedingly popular with Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Many believe his leadership will change the face of Catholicism and show it to be kinder, gentler, more inclusive and less judgmental than in the past. 

Study: fatal car-bike and car-pedestrian accidents on the rise

As we’ve said before, according to 2005 data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 64,000 pedestrians and 45,000 bicyclists were injured in car accidents in that year alone. Nearly 5,000 pedestrians and almost 1,000 bikers were killed that year.
