Perhaps the very material of a product is unsafe for consumers. In this instance, a product may contribute to allergic reactions, exposure to toxins, or present another sort of physical danger. As production costs increase, manufacturers may take shortcuts to most efficiently utilize their budget. However, when this practice compromises the safety of consumers, a case of product liability could arise. It is essential as a consumer to recognize when an issue with product material liability is at hand. While it is not as apparent or distinguishable as another sort of product liability, this facet of liability could be hazardous.
Although the general population of consumers infrequently considers the safety of product materials, there are many ways in which it has affected and has the potential to affect our daily lives. Famous examples of product material liability include lead-tainted paints in toys, melamine found in pet foods and milk and ethanol in alcohol. For these cases, there were dangerous potential consequences for the corners that were cut. Resolving these problems was mandatory and urgent as these products are commonly used every day. These demonstrate the importance of holding manufacturers accountable for the materials used in their products.
