Buying non-commercial consumer products like domestic items, recreational items, or sports gear is a common practice that often goes unscrutinized. It is rare to imagine that an appliance, furniture piece, children’s toy, sports item, or other product available for sale at a local retailer or online store will be unsafe for use.
Unfortunately, for a number of reasons, the products that are made available for sale throughout the country are not always safe to use. In fact, in some instances, using a non-commercial consumer item in accordance with its included safety instructions could have injurious repercussions.
Companies that manufacture, package, advertise, import, and distribute non-commercial consumer products are required to comply with national safety standards mandated by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). Unfortunately, these companies do not always follow federal safety protocols.
Consumers rarely consider the entire lifespan of the products they purchase. However, a product’s journey from conception to distribution is often a long and involved one that includes multiple companies and individual parties. Negligence can exist at any stage of a product’s lifespan. For example, a product could be:
Manufacturers of defective products have a duty to inform proper authorities as soon as they become aware of potential hazards associated with their commercial items. By doing so, a nationwide recall, advisory, and safety alert can be instituted to avoid the risk of the product causing additional harm. Failing to take this crucial action could also be considered negligence.
