Many dangerous products may still be in consumers' homes

Several toys that were recalled due to defects between January 2015 and October 2016 may still be in people's homes throughout the United States, including in West Virginia. This information comes from a Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, report about these dangerous products. Unfortunately, these products may cause harm to consumers, which is grounds for litigation.

According to the CPSC, when cars are recalled, owners are usually contacted right away through the vehicles' VIN numbers. However, no such system is in place for toys that have been recalled. Thus, toys that have been recalled over the past couple of years might still be in use or on sale online despite the potential dangers they pose.

Some of the toys that have been recalled lately were found to feature hazards such as powerful magnets or lead. An example of a toy that might still be in people's houses is a glockenspiel that was recalled in February of this year due to its high lead levels. Another toy that was recalled in June 2016 is a flying toy that is remote controlled. This toy has a USB charging cord that can overheat.

Consumers in West Virginia naturally expect the products they purchase to be safe for their families to use. However, this is not always the case, and a major defect may lead to serious injuries. If people are hurt as a result of using dangerous products, they have the right to file product liability claims in an effort to hold the product manufacturers accountable. A successfully fought claim may lead to a monetary damage award, which might help to cover medical bills, the loss of wages and other related losses.
