November Product Recalls
It is important for American consumers to keep track of recent product recalls in case they may have purchased recalled products. If a consumer suffers injuries or other damages from a recalled product, he or she may have grounds for a product liability claim against the product manufacturer. If you believe you have a product liability claim, speak with an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney to learn more about securing compensation for your injuries.
The following is a list of the products recalled by manufacturers in November of 2018 maintained by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
