The CPSC provides a current list of dangerous products

The content on this site is informational and does not create an attorney-client relationship or offer legal or medical advice. Every situation is different.

At Webb & Taylor, LLC, in Georgia, we routinely see the news media reports on major manufacturer recalls for products such as airbags and medical devices. However, you should know that the list of defective and dangerous products is much, much longer. In fact, the dangers of some products are serious enough that the federal government publishes up-to-date information about them. 

You will find the list of recalls on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website. Here are some of the most recent hazards. 

  • Recreational vehicles: In certain Polaris vehicles, crashes can occur due to incorrect wiring that may cause them to accelerate unexpectedly. Another off-highway vehicle by the same company is recalled due to possible brake failures. Both of these faulty products pose significant crash risks.
  • Light fixtures: A small number of Generation Brand light fixtures can come loose from the electrical cords that they are suspended from and strike and injure someone standing beneath them.
  • Riding lawnmowers: Excel Industries is offering repairs on Zero-Turn mowers because there is a wire that may cause damage to the fuel line, which creates a serious fire risk.

The seriousness of the risk of some of the products on the CPSC website may prompt a manufacturer to contact all purchasers and distributors directly to ensure that all the products are removed from use. In some cases, manufacturers are offering to repair the products, but in others, companies request that consumers immediately send the product back for a refund. If you see a product you purchased on the list, it is critical to follow the manufacturer's instructions right away.

More information about dangerous products is available on our website.
