Family sues Amazon after teen dies after consuming drink purchased on site

first_imgA family in Ohio is currently suing Amazon after their teen son died due to consuming a powdered coffee drink that was purchased through their website.According to the report, 18-year-old Logan Stiner was found unresponsive in his home in 2014 after consuming the drink that was purchased by a friend from Amazon and then given to him.A coroner ruled Stiner’s cause of death as cardiac arrhythmia and seizure from acute caffeine toxicity.Officials say at his time of death, the teen has as much as 23 times the amount of caffeine in his system than a typical coffee or soda drinker.The family says Stiner was using the powdered coffee drink as a pre-workout shake to give him more energy in the gym.While there no one in the case, including Amazon, is denying that the coffee drink is was led to Stiner’s death, neither party can agree on who should be responsible for the marketing and selling of the product to the teen.The teen’s friend has admitted that she found the product through an third party retailer on Amazon’s website and purchased the product of her own volition, but Stiner’s family believes that Amazon should still be held responsible for serving as a platform from which the product was sold.Amazon, however, claims that since the drink was sold by and shipped from a 3rd party retailer, and that all the information on the product came from the third party’s website, that they should not be held responsible for the purchase; especially since under Ohio’s law a supplier is defined as that  which operates under ownership, control and hands-on actions with a product.“Amazon never touched the product, and third parties provided all of the website content and delivered the product directly to the purchaser,” Amazon attorney Joyce Edelman argued in 2019.“The idea that Amazon cannot be a ‘supplier’ because it did not physically touch or take title to the product at issue ignores both the manner in which e-commerce is conduct today and Amazon’s crucial role in recommending the deadly powder,” the Stiner family’s lawyer argued last year.The case has been heard in several different courts which generally made rulings in Amazon’s favor, however, the Ohio Supreme Court plans to hear arguments on Wednesday on whether they should or should not pursue charges against Amazon.Since Stiner’s death, several changes to laws regarding the sell and distribution of powder caffeine have gone into effect.In 2015, former governor John Kasich signed a bill that banned the sale of pure powdered caffeine in Ohio and in 2018, the FDA said supplements consisting of pure or highly concentrated caffeine in powder or liquid forms, often sold in bulk, are ” generally unlawful” when sold directly to the customer.last_img read more

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure worked on installing culverts and clearing ditches along Old Fort Road to prevent ponding and flooding.To date, there are still unanswered questions. Late October Westrek Geotechnical said some residents of the Old Fort could return home once the road into the community was finished.In November, some residents would return home after a month’s time away and others were not so lucky. Lives were uprooted from homes built and lived in, people received conflicting information as residents struggled to prepare their homes for the approaching winter after the disarray from the evacuation order.In March 2019. the District says the removal of the stockpiles above the Old Fort was a precautionary measure needed to be taken at the recommendation of professional engineers with the work designed to be completed prior to the spring thaw by Deasan Holdings Ltd.July 2019, FSJ Council awards a slope stability study for the Old Hope Road and MLA Dan Davies wrote a letter to Mike Farnsworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General regarding the state of the Old Fort Slide and concern for the residents of the community.August 2019, in response to the letter Dan Davies sent to the government, the Province shared there was no long term plan to monitor Old Fort Landslide.

In the initial level around 25 trolleys and 4 wheel chairs are available in the booth. The number would be increased gradually, a senior official of the NRS Medical College and Hospital said. The hospital staff members used to face problems as the patients and their family members did not keep the trolleys in designated places after using them. As a result, the staff members of the hospital had trouble to find the trolleys left by the patients at various wards. The patients often alleged that the wheel chairs were not available when there was a requirement and as a result people having serious health condition had to suffer. It was alleged that the staff members of the NRS Medical College and Hospital ask for identity proofs such as Aadhaar card, voter identity card, driving licence while hiring a trolley. The system was seldom found in other government hospitals. The main purpose of introducing the system is to ensure that the family members of the patients return the trolleys in the designated places after use.
