The United States is a nation that thrives on its consumerism; when consumer spending is low, so is the economy. As more manufacturers realize how profitable consumer products can be, they rush to put their product out on the market. As a result, we are seeing more and more defective consumer products on the market. Because of this, there have been more recalls and lawsuits recently than ever before.
No consumer products are immune to potential safety issues and recalls. Anything – including makeup, food, laundry detergent, and clothing – can be recalled. There are a variety of issues that may arise from a consumer product. Take for example laptop computer batteries; many brands and models have been recalled due to the possibility of battery leakage, explosion, or fire. This has affected some of the most well known and highly trusted names in the industry.
Certain types of makeup, soap, or other personal care consumer products were also recalled. Some lead to rashes, itchiness, or unsightly skin damage, and some of the damage may be permanent. If this has happened to you as a result of using a defective consumer product, you may have a lawsuit.
