Highs and Lows When it comes to Recalls on Consumer Products

In a report from the Sacramento Bee, there are highs and lows when it comes to recalls on consumer products. If you have been injured by a dangerous product, you may be able to collect compensation for your injuries. “Based on third-quarter recall activity, product safety remains a hot topic among consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulators,” said Mike Rozembajgier, Vice President of Recalls at Stericycle ExpertRECALL. Results from the ExpertRECALL Index, find that recalls that have increased recently are:

  • medical devices;
  • pharmaceutical; and
  • food.

Recalls that have gone down include consumer goods and products designed for infants and children. With the holiday season upon us, experts are reminding manufacturers and retailers to be vigilant about consumer safety. Regulators should be more responsible with product safety complaints, while consumers should also have an increased awareness about any products that they may be thinking of purchasing which could cause injuries.  The most common hazards affecting recent recalls include structural-collapses and burns. The primary reason for recalls on infant and children’s products were due to choking hazards from small objects. If you or a loved one were seriously injured by a dangerous product, then you may be able to pursue compensation through a dangerous product claim.
