A major recall has been issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that parents may be interested in, especially those with babies. The recent recall was issued earlier this week on Monday, and affects gallons of “Kroger’s Comforts For Baby purified water with added fluoride...with a sell-by date between 4/26/2018 and 10/10/2018.” Why was the recall issued, though? Well, it turns out the affected gallons of water are contaminated with a certain “type of mold that could cause serious allergic reactions.”
Over the past year, Harley-Davidson Motor Company has been on the receiving end of discrimination allegations from a former employee, Connie S. Steven. Back in October 2016, Steven “filed a petition for damages in the Platte County Circuit Court...after receiving a right-to-sue notice from the Missouri Commission on Human Rights.” Now it appears that the particular lawsuit may be coming to a close, as a hearing was recently scheduled to “discuss a possible settlement in the employment discrimination lawsuit.”
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has recently come under fire on charges of gender discrimination. According to an employee, Jon Wunderlin, he “took a demotion from his assistant manager position and transferred from one Palmdale store to another to get away from a female boss who told him that women were much better managers.” The lawsuit itself was filed against Wunderlin's former boss, Heather Rodriguez, and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Age discrimination happens more often than one might think, and no industry is immune. For example, a recent case of age discrimination occurred at Penn State and has resulted in a wrongful termination lawsuit. A former Penn State employee, Tracey Jackson, decided to file a lawsuit against the university for $150,000 for “allegedly terminating her because of her age.” According to the lawsuit, Jackson is seeking “$150,000 to compensate for pay, seniority, benefits, bonuses, future raises, uncompensated sick, personal and vacation time and tax penalties.”
