Product Recalls Often Ineffective | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

Many Americans may possess items which have been recalled and not even know it, according to a New York Times’ article.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, whose mission is to protect consumers, cannot report how effective a given recall is, because of freedom of information issues.

Meanwhile, most companies try to avoid using the word “recall”. For example, Apple called its recall of laptop batteries a “battery exchange” despite their serious safety risks of catching fire and potential to cause serious injury or damage.
