Responding to Product Recalls
Virtually all types of consumer products are subject to recall. Recalls can be issued if a car’s airbags fail to deploy, if dangerous paint or parts are found in children’s toys, or if food is found to contain contaminates. Oftentimes, these recalled goods can be incredibly dangerous for consumers. Therefore, many injuries can be avoided by returning the affected item for repair or refund.
Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult or impossible to know about your purchase being recalled. If you have been injured by a dangerous product, it is important to speak to a Des Moines product liability attorney as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation.

Notification of Recalled Items
Television news programs, newspapers, Internet articles, and other news sources typically announce recalled products. Companies may also call, e-mail, or send postcards to their customers to inform them of the dangers of continued use.
Depending on the product, a refund or repair may be offered. Companies must take appropriate action in response to their defective product. Failure to do so may result in legal liability for any resulting injuries.
