Product Safety: Defective Product Recalls

38248826_S_pills_medicine_prescription_bottle (002).jpgEvery day we choose and purchase products, relying on federal law and industry standards to ensure that they are safe to use and that their package labeling is compliant with all health and safety warnings. Sadly, that is not always the case.

All too often, products that we use every day and depend on can harm us and cause serious injuries. When an individual suffers injury from a defective product, he may face significant medical care and financial issues. Whether health and beauty products, food and medications, clothing, toys and baby equipment, consumers expect that purchased products and services will not harm us or our family.

Product manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe to use when the directions are followed. An important component of this safety is clear directions as to how to use it properly and for whom it is intended.

Consumer Product Safety Resources

· Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CPSC issues periodic product recalls for merchandise ranging from water heaters to vitamin supplements, children's clothing, thermostats, lawn mowers and convertible high chairs. You can find information about recalls at this CPSC recalls website.

· U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA provides recalls, market withdrawals and safety alerts. Some of the recalls for 2018 included salad products because of the risk of listeria contamination; pet food for inaccurate vitamin levels; food products for undeclared allergens such as eggs, milk and nuts; medications for trace amounts of impurities; various foods for risk of salmonella. You can sign up for email notices of FDA updates.

· New York Department of State - Division of Consumer Protection. This New York State resource issues product safety recalls and scam alerts on an almost daily basis.
