0.00 (0 votes)
Document Description
Defective products are consumable and commercial goods that are generally hazardous. Children’s toys, motor vehicles, food products, and electronic equipment are a few examples of consumer goods that are often recalled due to product defects. Children’s Toys In the US alone, there are cases of product defects that are found in children’s toys. In the early 2000s, Burger King released plastic container toys that resemble Poke Balls as part of their promotion. Because of its defective product design, the toys were identified to be a suffocation hazard. Toys that are identified to contain lead may result to increased risk in lead exposure and poisoning. The Curious George 12-inch plush dolls as well as the Thomas and Friends Wooden Railway toys that were in the market in 2007 were both identified to contain lead. There were also cases where there are defects during the manufacturing process. A notable example is Bindeez or Aqua Dots. It was discovered that a toxic chemical was substituted for another production component. Motor Vehicles Motor vehicle defects are one of the common causes of road accidents. A common defect in motor vehicles is due to its parts that were used during the manufacturing. The Ford Motor Company is known to undergo several recalls due to product defects. In 2000, the said company recalled tires for the Ford Explorer SUV. During the period of 2004-2005, the Ford Powerstroke Diesel engines were identified to stall due to defective wirings. Toyota also released cars that eventually shown defects, including the defective accelerator pads and software that results to delays in braking in 2010, as well as the failure tire-deflation monitoring systems in early 2011, although there were no accidents and injuries that were sustained. Also in 2011, the Honda Motor Co released 700,000 cars which were identified to stall due to the engine design. There were no reported accidents and injuries that were related to this product. Food The most extensive case of food product defect happened in 2009. It involved the Peanut Corporation of America, where the peanut butter and peanut paste products were identified to have been exposed to salmonella. As these products were sold in bulk, there were several consumer products that were affected, totaling to 3913 different products from more than 361 companies. Electronic Equipment In the field of electronic devices, the most noteworthy defect was in 2006 when Sony notebook batteries were discovered to overheat and cause fire. This resulted to several recalls from other manufacturers who were using Sony notebook batteries, including Dell, Apple, Panasonic, Toshiba, Lenovo, Hitachi, Fujitsu, and Sanyo.
