In some cases, consumers are injured prior to the recalls and may have grounds for an injury claim against a negligent manufacturer held to strict liability laws. In May of this year, recalled products included portable heaters made by Quartz, riding lawn mowers made by Toro, and convection ovens made by Foshan Guanmei Electrical Company.
