Faulty products are a major problem

Whether you know it or not, you hear about defective products on a regular basis. Most commonly, faulty children’s toys, defective automobile parts, or tainted pharmaceuticals make it into the news. However, when we examine the government website that tracks all current recalls across the country, we can see that defective products regularly make it into the hands of consumers. There is virtually no industry without faulty products:

  • Cleaning products
  • Medications
  • Medical devices
  • Appliances
  • Toys
  • Automobiles
  • Auto parts
  • Strollers
  • Car seats
  • Cosmetics
  • Foods
  • Beverages
  • Tools
  • And more

Unfortunately, faulty products can lead to serious injuries and illnesses for consumers. Some of the most common injuries caused by faulty products include:

  • Choking injuries
  • Burns injuries
  • Lacerations or amputations
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Internal organ damage or failure
  • Cancers due to medication contamination

We also know that the recall list is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to defective products on the market, as many defective products do not make it to that list but still cause harm to consumers.

How to products become faulty?

There are various ways in which products can become defective: a design flaw, a manufacturing error, or a marketing problem.

  1. Design flaws: Despite the fact that most products undergo testing and pass the respective protection agency’s guidelines, there are still times when a poorly designed product makes it to retail outlets.
  2. Manufacturing flaws: Even well-designed products could be damaged during the manufacturing process and be rendered unsafe for consumers.
  3. Marketing issues: Consumers rely on the information on a product’s label in order to understand how to properly use the product. If a label is missing, incorrect, or does not have full information, consumers could misuse the product, leading to injuries or illness. Examples of label issues can include foods with incomplete ingredient lists, incorrect dosages on prescription medications, missing warnings about product dangers, and more.
