Defective Household Appliances & Consumer Products
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), major household appliances are responsible for over 150,000 fires in consumer homes, annually. This results in thousands of injuries, hundreds of fatalities, and hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage. Fires are one of the most common and severe consequences of defective household appliances malfunctioning. Several other common effects are cut skin, broken bones, electric shocks, and burns.

A Common Occurrence
Thousands of Americans are injured by household appliances every day. The increasing complexity of the appliances’ technology leads to an increased risk of products becoming defective, according to CPSC. The more technologically advanced a product is, the easier it should be to use; but instead, advanced technology seems to pose greater risks to consumers.
Over the past 5 years, 7 million dishwashers have been recalled by the CPSC due to fire hazards. The fact that there are still so many defective and potentially dangerous products being manufactured is worrisome, to say the least. When shopping, it is highly recommended that you register your product with the company that sells it to you, so you can be notified if it needs to be recalled.
Here are several of the most common defective household appliances:
- Clothes dryers
- Microwave ovens
- Washing machines
- Toasters and toaster ovens
