Major Manufacturing Defects
If a defective or dangerous product slips through the inspection process, consumers may be left to suffer for a manufacturer’s mistakes until a recall is announced. Depending on the company, a defect may not be considered sufficiently widespread to issue a formal recall, leaving some consumers without any warning regarding the safety of the product In question.

- Use of lead, mercury, or other dangerous substances

- Improper electrical wiring
- Lack of an important part or feature
