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 announced 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. Recently, the CPSC announced the following recalls related to products that present fire hazards:
Kubota Recalls Zero Turn Mowers Due to Fire Hazard (March 20, 2019);
American Honda Recalls Portable Generators Due to Fire and Burn Hazards (March 20, 2019);
Bulk Unlimited Recalls Children’s Globes Due to Fire and Burn Hazards (March 21, 2019).
