Recent Product Safety Recalls in the U.S.

Many consumer products are recalled every year due to concerns over their safety. These products are often voluntarily recalled by the manufacturers or through the FDA due to reports of adverse consequences or due to inspections of the manufacturing facilities. Products can be defective in many ways, through a design flaw, through defective source materials or construction, or due to a failure to warn or instruct consumers about how to use the product. For consumers who suffer injuries or even deaths in connection with the use of a consumer product, they may have grounds for a product liability claim in which they can seek damages for their losses.

Recent product recalls in 2013 include the recall of children's pajama sets by Vive La Fete due to a risk of injury connected with their failure to comply with federal flammability standards, the recall of GNU snowboard bindings by Mervin Manufacturing because of the potential for ankle straps to break creating a fall hazard, the recall of children's beds by Lea Industries which pose a fall hazard due to the possible breakage of support rails, the recall of certain Eco-Cuisine products due to a possible salmonella contamination, the recall of portable electric heaters made by Optimus due to a fire hazard, and the recall of Louisville Slugger OneX Fastpitch softball bats made by Hillerich & Bradsby due to the bat barrel tendency to separate from the handle which poses a potential threat of injury. All of the above recalls were done on a voluntary basis by the manufacturers.
