December 13 2013
Washington, DC: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with IKEA North America, of Conshohocken, Pa., is announcing the recall for repair of children’s wall-mounted lamps due to a strangulation hazard.
A 16-month-old child in a crib died after getting entangled in the lamp’s cord. In a separate incident, a 15-month-old child in a crib became entangled in the lamp’s cord and nearly strangled. In both incidents, which occurred in Europe, the lamp cord was pulled into the crib by the infants. There were 2.9 million of the recalled lamps sold in the United States. In addition, 1.1 million were sold in Canada. There was a total of 23 million sold worldwide.
The recalled IKEA children’s SMILA-series wall-mounted lamps were sold in eight designs, including a blue star, yellow moon, pink flower, white flower, red heart, green bug, blue seashell and an orange seahorse. The blue star is the STJÄRNA model with article numbers 501.944.49 or 500.108.79. The yellow moon is the MÅNE model with article numbers 701.944.48 or 700.108.40. The pink flower is the BLOMMA model with article numbers 901.944.47 or 000.979.50. The white flower is the BLOMMA model with article number 300-746-50. The red heart is the HJÄRTA model with article numbers 202.256.59 or 801.993.13. The green bug is the BAGGE model with article numbers 101.944.46 or 700.728.71. The blue seashell is the SNÄCKA model with article number 400-982-50. The orange seahorse is the SJÖHÄST model with article number 900-982-43.
The model name is printed on a label on the inside back of the lamp near the light bulb. The article number is printed on the lamp’s packaging.
The plastic wall-mounted children’s lamps measure about 11 inches high by 11 inches wide. They have a 7 ft. long electrical cord with an in-line switch and take a 25-watt light bulb.
They were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide, in IKEA’s catalog and online at ikea-usa.com from July 1999 through May 2013 for between $10 and $13.
The lamps were made in the United States, Lithuania and China.

Negligent Treatment of Bedsores Results in $315K Verdict
Miami, FL: The family of an 88-year old woman who underwent treatment for a Stage IV sacral pressure sore which the family allege was negligently performed and led to their mother’s death, have been awarded $315 thousand in their medical negligence lawsuit.
The surgery was done through Vohra Health Services, a wound care company that treated residents at Miami Gardens Care Center. The woman’s daughter alleged in her lawsuit, that the doctor involved negligently performed a surgical debridement by failing to remove all the necrotic tissue from the wound. The daughter further alleged that the surgery and post-operative care from the nurse involved caused her mother’s death. Notably, the counsel for the defense counsel also blamed Miami Gardens for the worsening of the woman’s bed sore.
The jury found the physician 65 percent liable, the nurse 25 percent liable and Miami Gardens, as a Fabre defendant, 10 percent liable.

Is my homemade contract valid???
I made a handwritten contract stating that my boyfriend will remain faithful to me as long as we are in a relationship. If he were to fail to comply, i would be compensated and have full custody of our baby boy.
I explained it to my boyfriend and clearly told him, I am in no way forcing him to sign and it’s only to assure he’s committed to our relationship. He signed without hesitation and said he agreed. I signed it as well.
So my question is; if he were to be unfaithful in any way that i stated in Lawyer in Murrieta my contract, would the contract take effect in court? Can he be legally obligated to pay me for emotional distress? … Again, i did Not force him to sign nor am i forcing him to be with me. If he wants to leave me he can freely do so, but i will not my website tolerate infidelity in my relationship.
