Have you or a loved one received a notice from a manufacturer or the US Consumer Product Safety Commission of a product recall? A recalled item can frequently result in a product liability claim. A product is typically recalled when it is deemed a serious or unforeseen threat to the general public. It is not unusual for consumers to purchase a safe, everyday item that may have been manufactured with a defect.
Types of Product Recalls
Cars, auto parts and auto accessories are frequently recalled for varying problems ranging from the very minor to the very serious. Any automotive defect can result in serious or even fatal car accidents. For instance, with the Toyota acceleration scare and recall, the public is even more aware of the dangers of a defect product within an automobile.
Products for children are more often the subject of recalls on a voluntary basis by the manufacturer. Consumers frequently must return items such as toys, cribs, car seats and clothing due to a manufacturer recall for a defect. Unfortunately, these defects are typically discovered after a child has suffered an injury from a minor burn to an injury more serious such as an amputation or even death.
