Consumers have a right to know that the products they purchase are safe for use and won’t cause injury or illness. All risks associated with the use of the product should be clearly detailed on the product label. Consumer laws in the United States protect citizens from dangerous or predatory companies. Although there are restrictions imposed on manufacturing companies to ensure that they create products that are safe for consumers, sadly, not all products are safe or defect-free.
Every company has a responsibility to keep consumers safe from harm and to adequately warn consumers of any inherent dangers in their products. However, defects may exist from the original design of the product, may arise during manufacture and assembly, or may even come about during shipping, distribution, or sitting on a store shelf.
