Finding Out About Defective Products and Product Recalls

On any given day, you can find dozens of consumer safety alerts and news of product recalls on the websites for official government agencies like the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Food and Drug Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

These agencies, among others, are charged with alerting the public to dangerous defective products that may cause serious injury, illness or even death. The consumer alerts and recalls on defective products serve to both protect and inform the public of the existence of defective products.

Some high-profile examples of defective products that resulted in serious injury and product recalls in 2010 include:

  • The various Toyota recalls that were related to unexpected acceleration among other manufacturing and design defects;
  • A massive recall on Infantino baby slings after reports of several infants suffocating in the unsafe baby products;
  • A drug recall on millions of bottles of children's drugs, including Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec; and
  • The recall on the common food additive hydrolyzed vegetable protein that was contaminated with salmonella bacteria and affected dozens of products by numerous manufacturers.  


If you've been injured after using a defective product, the official safety recall and other information-such as research and injury reports-provided by these organizations may prove helpful as your Philadelphia product liability lawyer works to assemble evidence for your injury claim.
