Joe,

What would you say would be necessary for a Manufacturer to not be guilty of "failure to warn or inadequacy of warning" when something relating to their products is found to be dangerous? Is a warning somewhere on the Box or label sufficient? Are there any guidelines for proper notification of the public, perhaps through the CPSC?

Both, and the CPSC does an excellent job warning us about hazards.

Happy Holidays!

Joe,

Yes, I agree that NESF and CPSC do a great job of getting the message across. Do you know if a Manufacturer must let them know if they find a defect? It sounds like they must try to adequately inform the public. Is there a way they must do this? I mean do they have to call CPSC or NESF or some Government Agency? I am just curious.

Does anyone know what steps have to be followed?
