How Do Defective Products Make It to Market?

When a new product is made and it is in the process of making it to market, there are several factors that need to be considered regarding how the products gets through the testing phase. This testing is designed to keep consumers safe and free from significant problems.

Unfortunately, not everyone follows the safety protocols, products are made incorrectly, and testing is bypassed to avoid the strenuous process. Understanding how and why a defective product makes it past this testing is important.

If a Product Is Defective, How Does It Get Sold In the First Place?

Many people ask this question: “if a product is defective, how did it make it to the consumer?” There are certain methods that manufacturers may attempt to use to get passed testing by the United States Food and Drug Administration. When these shortcuts are taken, it puts others in significant danger.

The manufacturer often tries to push their product out of the door as quickly as possible to begin collecting a payment. This also means putting others at risk regardless of whether to equipment is complete and safe or not.

Why Would a Manufacturer Try to Cut Corners?

It’s an unfortunate situation, but there are several cases in which manufacturers cut corners to save money. They may try to reduce the number of parts they add on the product to make it cost less for production while selling it at the same price.

If this is imperative to the safety of those buyers for manufacturers to go through the process of getting their product tested. This is to ensure that consumers are free from harm. Though, these problems are something that persists far too often.
