Student hurt in Cedar Falls bike accident

A female student on a bike was recently injured through her involvement in an accident with a vehicle, an article published by kwwl.com reported on September 21.

According to reports, the accident involving a bicycle and a vehicle on September 20 took place at the 18th Street and Hudson intersection. The bicyclist identified as a UNI student was on her way to the campus when she was struck by a vehicle driven by an 89-year-old woman. Reports revealed that the collision happened after the elderly woman proceeded in making a right turn despite a red traffic signal. The student, who is now afraid to ride her bike, was lucky to only have sustained minor injuries after hitting the vehicle’s hood. Authorities issued a ticket to the vehicle driver for her failure to give right of way.

Nut products sold in the US recalled due to Salmonella risks

A North Carolina-based company recently issued a recall on the “Diamond of California” brand of macadamia nuts after a sample contained harmful Salmonella bacteria, an August 31 article of Food Safety News stated.

According to reports, Snyder’s-Lance Inc., is cooperating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after a laboratory test detected the hazardous bacteria in one of its samples. Neither the recalling company nor the FDA received illness complaints before the recall was issued. Snyder’s-Lance advised consumers to contact them to get their money back. When ingested, food containing Salmonella bacteria can cause severe or even fatal illness to children and older adults who have a very weak immune system. For healthy people, the bacteria can trigger digestive problems, nausea, vomiting, and fever.

Many people, unfortunately, have to deal with a great financial loss after sustaining illness as the result of consuming contaminated food products. However, if you are in such situation, working with a skilled attorney is critical for you to potentially receive the financial assistance you need for hospitalization.
