All types of consumer products can cause injury. The manufacturer, retailer, and / or designer are only responsible when the product is defective, causing unnecessary danger when the product is properly used according to its intended purpose. In some situations, products must also include clear warning labels plainly displayed on the product and / or its packaging.
Dangerous and defective products continue to infiltrate the market and routinely injure consumers. Sometimes these products are not associated with dangerous side effects for many years or even generations - for example, lead-based paints and fireproof insulation that contains asbestos. While scientists now know that lead causes health problems and that asbestos can lead to dangerous diseases such as mesothelioma, these materials have been used for years. In fact, asbestos dates back to the Greek and Roman period.
Other products, however, are quickly associated with dangerous side effects once they land on the market. From tainted batches of produce or peanut butter to malfunctioning power tools to children's toys that pose choking hazards to medications with severe side effects, it may not take long before these products are discovered and recalled.
