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. On December 16, 2020, the CPSC announced the following recalls related to products that present fire hazards:

  1. LG Energy Solution Michigan Recalls Home Energy Storage Batteries Due to Fire Hazard. According to the CPSC, “[t]he home batteries can overheat, posing a risk of fire and emission of harmful smoke.”
  2. Camp Chef Recalls Portable Gas Stoves Due to Fire Hazard. According to the CPSC, “[a]n internal part of the gas regulator component can have a sharp edge that can wear or tear a hole in the seal causing gas to leak out of the top of the regulator, posing a fire hazard.”
