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?

Bill:

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?
