When a person buys a product, they should be able to expect that it will be safe to use it reasonably, as intended, or as advertised. This is why they gave their hard-earned dollars to its manufacturer. This is because manufacturers are responsible for the safety of their products as well as the accuracy of their advertising campaigns.
Unfortunately, sometimes manufacturers fail to exercise the proper amount of oversight and produce products that are dangerous, have some sort of defect, or malfunction. When this happens, customers can fall victim to serious injuries through no fault of their own.
- Mispackaged or contaminated food
- Automobiles with defective brakes or airbags
- Toys that present a choking hazard
- Products that cannot be safely used as advertised
Defective products are often recalled quickly, but it is difficult for manufacturers to perform recalls before someone suffers an injury. Consumers should keep an eye on recall lists to make sure the items they purchase are safe to use.
