Do you think the products in your home are safe? If you answered yes, you might want to take a second look. Defective and dangerous products can be found all over the place, from toys with small parts that pose a choking hazard for children, to appliances that have been recalled because of fire hazards.

What Is a Defective Product?
A defective product is one that has been made incorrectly, or with safety hazards. It might be unsafe because it was not designed correctly, safely, or the design may have inherent flaws in how it operates. Defective products are dangerous and can cause serious injury.

- Toys with small parts that children can choke on
- Appliances, such as a stove or microwave, which pose a fire hazard
