Consumer Product Safety Commission Recalls

This entry was posted by on .

In subrogation cases where the insured’s damages were caused by a defective product, the fact that the product at issue is or was subject to a recall by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) may help to establish that the product was defective when it left the manufacturer’s possession and control. On November 12, 2015, the CPSC issued the following recall notices related to products that present fire hazards:

STIHL Recalls Edgers, Trimmer/Brushcutters, Pole Pruners and KombiMotors Due to Fire Hazard

Family Dollar Recalls Wax Warmers Due to Fire and Burn Hazards

PNY Recalls Portable Lithium Polymer Battery Packs Due to Fire Hazard
