Product Liability Basics

There are three different types of defects that can cause harm to consumers: design defects, manufacturing defects, and defects in marketing.

Products with design defects were defective before they were even made due to a flaw in the design. With manufacturing defects, something goes wrong during production or construction of the product.

Finally, defects in marketing can result in improper product instructions, products that do not live up to their warranties or a lack of necessary warnings regarding product use.

Product LiabilityEach year, many products and toys are found defective and recalled for their potential to cause harm to consumers. A defective product or toy can result in a product liability case. Section 102(2) of the Uniform Product Liability Act states that, product liability includes "all claims or action brought for personal injury, death, or property damage caused by the manufacture, design, formula, preparation, assembly, installation, testing, warnings, instructions, marketing, packaging, or labeling of any product."

According to a recent study, over 45 million defective products and toys were recalled in just one year. China produced 30 million of the defective products and toys that were recalled. Many of the toys and products used in the United States come from China, and many of these recalls occur because of unsafe lead materials that were used in production. Some of these products are not properly tested before reaching and being distributed in the United States. The study also shows that there are currently 400,000 children in the United States that are suffering from problems related directly to lead poisoning. It still remains an important health issue today. It is also vital to keep in mind that lead poisoning may not show any obvious, immediate signs at first. Parents and family members should be concerned about lead levels in toys because it is a poisonous, heavy metal that can slow growth in children, both physically and mentally.


Lead in toys and other products can cause:

  • Impaired Memory
  • Shortened Attention Spans
  • Behavior Problems
  • Headaches
  • Lowered IQ's
  • Nervous System Disorders
  • Joint/Muscle Weakness and/or Pain
  • Lethargy
  • Irritability
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Vomiting

In toys, lead is sometimes used in the plastic to make the toy more flexible. When it is exposed to certain elements, the chemical bond between the lead and plastic breaks down and creates a toxic dust. Lead has no smell and cannot be seen by the naked eye. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is responsible for issuing recalls of toys that could potentially expose children to lead. Unfortunately, sometimes these recalls occur after someone was already harmed from a defective product or toy.
