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 September 15, 2016, the CPSC issued the following recall notices related to products that present fire hazards:

GE Appliances Recalls Top-Loading Clothes Washers Due to Fire Hazard

Samsung Recalls Galaxy Note7 Smartphones Due to Serious Fire and Burn Hazards
