While every product may contain a flaw at one point or another, certain products are more susceptible to defects than others.

Learn the products that are the most likely to contain defects so you know which to use and which to avoid.

Common Types of Defective Products

The products most often involved in product liability lawsuits include the following:

  • Food and medicine: Given the way that food and medicine are produced, there is a great risk of cross-contamination. As such, food and medicine are two of the most common products to contain dangerous defects or contaminants.

  • Household appliances: Though we use most household appliances every day without thinking about them, many household appliances pose significant risks to consumers when they are defective. Stoves, microwaves, toasters, and more all utilize heat and, as such, have the potential to cause serious injuries.

  • Children’s products: Children’s products often contain paint and small parts. As such, even a minor defect can lead to major injuries. To that end, children’s toys, clothes, and other products often have to be recalled.

  • Auto parts: Cars, trucks, and other vehicles are complex machines with many components and, as such, are susceptible to even a minor defect. Common auto defects often involve airbags, brakes, tires, and more.
