The Scope Of The Problem

Before we discuss what can happen with faulty products, we want to briefly review the three main things that can go wrong and cause a product to be defective:

  1. The product is poorly designed from the beginning. Most of the time, product flaws are discovered during the testing phases. However, there are times when poor designs slip through and make it to the market.
  2. The product experiences a manufacturing error that alters it from its design. This can make it just as dangerous as a poorly designed product.
  3. There are problems with the label that mislead consumers. This can include hazards and warnings being left off the label. It can also include a product having improper instructions or dosages or incorrect ingredient lists.

Most of the time, when a problem is discovered, a recall is issued. If you look at the government website that tracks all current recalls, you will find hundreds of products that span all industries:

  • Vehicles
  • Tools
  • Toys
  • Appliances
  • Foods
  • Beverages
  • Medications
  • Medical devices
  • Medications
  • Furniture
  • Baby strollers
  • Car seats

The list goes on. However, there are times when faulty products are not recalled. This could be because faults have not been widely discovered yet or that the company is fighting a recall.

Faulty products can cause major injuries or illnesses that can lead to massive medical expenses. In most cases, these injuries and illnesses are discovered quickly. In other cases, the problems may take years to develop, as we have seen in cases involving tobacco, weed killers, implantable medical devices, and more.

If a company or manufacturer is responsible for causing harm, they need to be held accountable for their actions.
