Understanding Product Recalls

When a product becomes available to the public for use, most consumers assume that it is safe and effective. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some products are defective and may cause harm to users, especially when those users are children. When it become apparent that a product is unsafe for the public, its manufacturers issue a recall, and it is removed from the market.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled compensation for your losses.

The Recall Process

Before a product is recalled, the manufacturer or distributor must have received enough complaints and/or lawsuits about the product to make a recall financially beneficial for the company. While this may seem unethical, it is basic recall protocol, which is why every consumer who is injured by a dangerous product should take legal action. Common causes for product recalls include:

  • Child choking hazards
  • Lead content
  • Burn hazards
  • Slip and fall hazards

In order to stay alert about recently recalled products, visit the official Consumer Product and Safety Commission's website.
