The act of making coffee involved about a dozen companies.

What Can Happen?
When most people think about faulty products, they just think about what they hear on the news and assume it cannot happen to them. At least, that is what they hope. Unfortunately, the problem is more wide-spread than most people realize. Millions of faulty products find their way into homes across the country each year.
Before we talk about what to do if you are harmed, let’s look at the main three ways in which faulty products end up in the hands of consumers:
- When a product is poorly designed to begin with, it can lead to major problems because that likely means that every unit is defective. If the problem is not discovered quickly (often problems are not found until years later), then millions of people could be affected.
- Other times products experience a manufacturing defect that alters them from their original design. This may or may not affect entire lines of products.
- Labeling problems are a problem because consumers rely on product labels for hazards, ingredients, dosages, and instructions. Anything not labeled correctly can lead to major injuries.
Take a look at the government website that tracks current recalls and you will see that there are hundreds of products at any given moment that have made their way into people’s homes. They range from vehicle and appliances to foods and medication.
Regardless of how a faulty product makes its way into your home, if you or a family member are harmed, the company and manufacturer should be held accountable.
