Nissin Cup O Noodles & Maruchan Instant Lunch Soup Burns
Bringing Claims Throughout The United States
Have you or a loved one been burned by Nissin Cup O Noodles, Maruchan Instant Lunch or similar soup? Recent research indicates that the common styrofoam cup Instant Add hot water soup design is extremely dangerous to children.
Burn Doctors report that instant soup packaged in styrofoam cups such as Nissan Cup O Noodles may pose serious burn risks to children who frequently tip over the cups while trying to eat the noodles.
The dangers of the package design has been the subject of a peer reviewed study published by the National Institutes of Health. Entitled: "Instant cup of soup: design flaws increase risk of burns." The research study published by a group of doctors at the Shriners Burn Hospitals for Children Northern California, University of California, Davis outlines the risks. The study measured the height and base size of the cup concluding that the height of the cup made it more likely tip over. The study concluded: Simple redesigning of instant soup packaging with a wider base and shorter height, along with the requirement for warnings about the risks of burns would reduce the frequency of soup burns.
In other words the Soup makers have known or should have known for years about these risks but haven’t done anything. Related studies have concluded: One of the leading causes of scald burn injury in children is from hot soup, particularly prepackaged instant soups.
According to recent media reports, Dr. Warren Garner, (the director of the patient Burn unit at University of Southern California’s County Hospital) that he sees “at least two to three patients a week who’ve been injured by these products.” In the interview he says young children, and toddlers, are often seriously burned. The doctor stated that One in 5 kids who come to the emergency room with Soup burns needs surgery and many face permanent disability due to nerve damage.
