Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 30, 2007 -- LegalView.com recently reported on its mesothlelioma information blog that a popular toy was finally pulled from shelves after it was found to have been tainted with traces of asbestos dust. The CSI:Crime Scene Investigation Fingerprint Examination Kits and the CSI:Crime Scene Investigation Field Kits allegedly had traces of asbestos fibers and dust in the product, which is made for children.
Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer that is often described as painful and debilitating for victims. Most individuals who are diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer came in contact with asbestos fibers or asbestos dust several years earlier. After having inhaled the asbestos, cancer cells began to form on the interior lining of the lung. Mesothelioma cancer is often misdiagnosed because symptoms are similar to other illnesses and because it takes years and even decades to develop. If caught early, there is a chance of treating mesothelioma, but because it is considered a silent killer by many, it is often not caught until it is far too late for a victim. If you recently purchased either of these recalled toy games, contact a mesothelioma law firm to determine the next best step to protect loved ones. Also contact an experienced asbestos attorney if you, a friend or family member has or may have been previously exposed to asbestos to get the help you deserve.
The games were allegedly found to have asbestos contamination in the fingerprint powder within the kits. An asbestos awareness group known as the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) tested hundreds of toys and other products for asbestos, according to news reports. Several weeks after finding the toy's contamination, the toys were finally removed from shelves. Contact with asbestos is irreversible and extremely hazardous to any human being, but children are especially susceptible to harm from asbestos. If you feel you, your child, a friend or family member has been exposed to asbestos fibers or dust contact an asbestos law firm for more information on what to do.
