Cigarette Fire Wrongful Death Lawsuits

According to an online news report published on blackburnnews.com, millions of packs of cigarettes have been recalled due to a fire hazard problem. The recall notice states that 10 million packs of Player’s brand cigarettes have been recalled due to an increased fire hazard. The recall affected Player’s Smooth, Player’s, and Player’s Original regular-size cigarettes. The affected cigarettes were sold in packs of 20 and 25, and they have different UPC codes.

The recall announcement states that the cigarettes do not meet the performance criteria mandated by the Cigarette Ignition Propensity Regulations. Under those regulations, “cigarettes must burn their full length no more than 25 percent of the time.” When cigarettes fail to meet performance standards, there is an increased fire hazard. The danger comes when cigarettes are accidentally dropped onto bedding, furniture, or other textile products and ignite a potentially deadly fire.

Those who purchased the recalled cigarettes are urged to immediately stop smoking the cigarettes and contact Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited to receive a replacement product. The company states that there have not been any accident reports concerning the recalled tobacco products.
