Dear friends….this is a post on my facebook page March 20, 2016…As I sat in my recliner (as usual) the anger, frustration and unknown got to me….It was too late to help myself but maybe I could help others who work with this product.  

After many suggestions, I went online (what would we do without Google?) and found the CPSC. . Consumer Product Safety Commission…They had a form for me to fill out with all the information on my complaint. .Listed the burlap ribbon purchased from Walmart and the effects it had on me and that it could have been pevented if the rolls of burlap had a warning label to wear a mask when using….I heard back from them almost immediately. They assigned me a case number and told me they would contact the supplier (Walmart) and manufacturer  (a company in China)

Within few days, they received a message from Walmart asking for me to contact them…Which I did and to make a long story short….Walmart wanted to send a insurance adjuster to my home to ask me questions and take pictures…. At this time I was advised by many to get an attorney. ….Which I did……

Enough for today…I am exhausted.   Thanks for reading and Blessings to all of you. . . .

  1. I will be praying for you. Our God will carry you thru this. Please let us know how it is going and I pray you win your law suit.


  2. I will be praying for you and may God keep giving you strength to keep fighting .Thank you so much for sharing your story as to i have just started to get into wreaths and working with burlap. I am a 28 year old mother of two an 8 yr old and a 10 month old and i wouldn’t be able to live with myself if i caused them harm or left them way to early. So you have saved 3 lives by sharing thank you .Your are an angel my your days be filled with happiness. With love always


  3. God bless you! I am so very sorry this happened to you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I certainly will be praying for your health and your struggle to make this hazzard wll known! I pray you receive some compensation and consolation for your efforts. Again, God bless you!


  4. I am so sad that you have to go through all that you are!!! Hard to imagine and so unfair that one of the activities you enjoyed doing has brought you this horrendous medical condition. I have only started doing wreaths the end of last year, basically plastic table cloth and candy cane. I hope the CPSC and Walmart will quickly require warnings for working with burlap to save others from future medical problems. Hopefully you will be able to collect some compensation for your mounting medical bills from the manufacturer. My heart to you and your family.


  5. Oh my goodness Brenda! You go girl! Be wary of Walmart wanting to be with you privately because they are only doing this to save themselves from a costly court battle. Your attorney will be helpful with all of this! They should be contacting him/her from here out. Too many greedy corporations take advantage of those so vulnerable. Let the pro’s handle it! You should enjoy your days and make the most of them. Let the people that get paid do all the work! 🙂 Still thinking of you and praying for healthier days!
