This class action alleges that the herbicide Loyant not only doesn’t control grasses and weeds but damages rice crops as well.

The plaintiffs are a number of farms that used Loyant, in a number of different states.

Yellow Rock 'n Play Sleeper

Fisher-Price, Inc. makes a product called the Rock ’n Play Sleeper which purports to be appropriate for babies to sleep in for an extended period or even overnight. But the complaint for this class action alleges that babies left to sleep on it have been injured or died, and that the product is not in fact safe for its advertised purpose. It sues Fisher-Price and its parent company Mattel, Inc. for selling a product they knew or should have known was dangerous.

Pair of Combat Arms Earplugs

It’s a little alarming to hear that a set of earplugs designed for combat situations actually amplifies noise when inserted in a certain position.
