Defective Product Recall Affects Healthcare Facilities


Posted on Jul 19, 2010

July 16, 2010 - Washington, DC - A large recall of defective imported televisions is affecting healthcare facilities nationwide. Because of a fire hazard, a voluntary recall of PDi Communications televisions has recently been issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The defective product recall affects about 2,700 televisions that were imported from China and installed between September of 2008 and July of 2009. All of these dangerous televisions are located in healthcare facilities across the U.S. The CPSC said the danger is in the television's capacitors which can fail and cause a fire hazard.

This defective product situation illustrates one of the circumstances that can arise in a product liability claim. Even though the TV sets are not likely owned by individual consumers, if a consumer-such as a hospital patient-were to suffer an injury because of the defective TV sets, the victim may be eligible for a defective product claim against the manufacturer. That is because you do not need to be the owner of a defective product in order to file a product liability claim in Pennsylvania, or anywhere in the U.S.
