The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says that defective products cause more than 29.5 million injuries and close to 22,000 deaths in the US each year.
Some reasons for why a manufactured product might be defective:
– design defects
– defective manufacturing
– inadequate testing
– marketing misrepresentation – includes confusing, difficult to follow instructions and incomplete warning labels
