How Does the Product Recall Process Work?
At first, a company will receive a stray consumer complaint or two about a product. Something about that product seems dangerous. Over time, the complaints start to pile up. Something about that product is hurting people or making them sick… or perhaps something about the product hasn’t caused harm yet but is just too risky. At this point, the company selling the dangerous (or potentially dangerous) product may choose to issue a voluntary recall. Or, the company may recklessly choose to keep selling the product, despite evidence that it does/could cause people harm. If the company keeps selling the dangerous product, the Food and Drug Administration or the Consumer Product Safety Commission could get involved to compel a recall. It’s important to understand that an unsafe product does not need to be recalled for someone who has been harmed by it to pursue legal action against the manufacturer or other responsible parties. As a result, anyone who has been harmed by a manufactured product, drug, food or other regulated item may want to speak with an experienced Denver, CO defective product lawyer to explore their legal options.
The Ins and Outs of Product Recalls
Most of the time, recalls are undertaken voluntarily by manufacturers, for obvious reasons. Every time one of their products hurts a consumer, it makes their bottom line vulnerable by exposing them to legal action. Harm from products can also be a P.R. nightmare. But there are times when companies (often inexplicably) “dig their heels in” and keep selling defective or dangerous products, despite the risks involved. At this point, government agencies may compel companies to issue recalls and/or fine them for not doing so earlier. The specifics of recall protocol vary depending on whether the product in question is regulated by the FDA or subject to oversight from the CPSC. There are different recall classifications based upon the severity of the harm that could be caused by the defective or dangerous product. Once recalled, it is up to retailers to take the affected items off shelves and/or consumers to return the items they own for repair, replacement, or refund (depending on the situation).
