Nearly every day there is a story in the news about a defective product on the market. Automobile manufacturers recall vehicles for faulty brake and steering systems, airbags and other defective parts that have been the cause of many injury accidents. Defective and dangerous toys can harm small children if there are parts that cause choking or contain poisonous lead paint. Many types of baby cribs, playpens and other baby furniture with defective features have resulted in a great bodily harm and deaths.
The government made the manufacturers of certain window blinds and shades to recall their defective products due to cord strangulation of numerous small children. Manufacturing companies have a duty of care to consumers to provide safe products that do not cause harm or injuries, or provide adequate warnings if a potential hazard. Some manufacturers are responsible and take their products off the market on their own initiative.
Pharmaceutical companies and other manufacturers often place their profits above consumer safety and continue to produce and sell dangerous and defective drugs.
