Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 27, 2009 -- LegalView.info, the number one resource for everything and anything legal on the Web, continues to provide the most up-to-the-minute news and information on the recent rash of salmonella poisonings caused by the recent peanut butter recall. Nearly 500 Americans have been infected with salmonella, and, the number of salmonella deaths has now increased to seven with the recent death of a women in Minnesota who consumed the tainted peanut butter. Officials with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have determined that there are approximately 125 food products that have potentially been infected with the tainted peanut butter including cookies, pet foods, ice cream and crackers. Those who were at risk due to the peanut butter salmonella recall should discuss their case with an experienced peanut butter recall attorney who can provide details as to the creation of litigation involving the tainted peanut butter.
Through a governmental investigation, it has been determined that the tainted peanut butter stems from a Blakely, Georgia processing facility belonging to the Peanut Corporation of America. Individuals who have consumed any of the peanut butter or any products that may have contained it should report their salmonella infection to officials immediately. Additionally, it is advisable for a peanut butter recall victim to obtain a free legal consultation from a knowledgeable peanut butter lawyer regarding the development of a peanut butter lawsuit that could result in the compensation of monetary funds for a victim.
LegalView also offers a multitude of other legal resources including information on the latest mesothelioma treatments as well as Avandia and Byetta side effects. Mesothelioma is a lung condition in which cancerous cells develop on the interior lining of the lungs and internal organs after asbestos fibers and dust have been inhaled. The condition is highly fatal and is often not only difficult to diagnose, because of the dormant nature of the disease's side effects, but is also frequently misdiagnosed with other conditions. Individuals who have developed mesothelioma should speak with an environmental toxin attorney regarding any potential mesothelioma lawsuit.

Both Byetta and Avandia are used to treat type 2 diabetes among patients, however, each drug has been linked to dangerous side effects among patients. Byetta, also known as exenatide, from Amylin Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly and Company is an injectable form of medication used to regulate insulin levels in patients. However, the drug was recently linked to the hospitalization of six patients who suffered from pancreatitis. Of the six pancreatic patients, two resulted in fatality. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has investigated the drug, it remains on the market. Individuals taking Byetta should discuss the potential Byetta side effects with their medical professional.
Avandia, similar to Byetta, has been linked to a plethora of dangers including bone fractures among women patients and the onset of osteoporosis and heart failure/heart disease among all patients. Those who have been a patient of Avandia for their type 2 diabetes condition should speak with their physician regarding the drug's side effects and may require a change in medication. Patients may also need to speak with a pharmaceutical attorney regarding the onset of a potential Avandia class action lawsuit as well.
