  • The Paragard IUD allegedly contains a defect that causes the product’s arms to break off inside the body during removal
  • Hernia mesh implants, used to help speed healing from hernia surgery, have been alleged to be defective, resulting in complications, organ perforations, and other injuries
  • Philips CPAP machines, used to treat sleep apnea, contain a sound abatement foam that has been found to degrade, entering the user’s airway and possibly causing a number of complications
  • Zantac, the common heartburn medication, has been linked to increased risks of cancer due to being contaminated with a known carcinogen (NDMA)
  • Roundup weedkiller exposure has been linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and its manufacturer is currently being litigated against with plaintiffs alleging they were aware of the cancer risks as early as the 1970s and did nothing
