Interesting Statistic (78% !!!) and Discussion about Recalls of Foreign Products.

Interesting Statistic (78% !!!) and Discussion about Recalls of Foreign Products.


“Did you know that more than seventy-eight percent of all Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls in 2012 were of products made by foreign manufacturers? Over the years recalled foreign products have included contaminated toys, toxic drywall, pet food laced with rat poisoning, and many more. Despite the number of recalls, foreign corporations are able to evade United States laws and safety standards because of the difficulty of holding them responsible in the U.S. court system. This creates an unfair market advantage for foreign corporations, who have little fear of being held accountable when their defective products injure and kill American consumers. U.S. consumers and businesses need additional tools to hold foreign companies responsible for the defective and sometimes very dangerous products they sell here. The Foreign Manufacturers Legal Accountability Act of 2013 (H.R. 1910), a bipartisan bill, will level the playing field for American businesses and help hold foreign manufacturers accountable.

With the overwhelming majority of recalled products in the U.S. being manufactured overseas, requiring accountability from foreign manufacturers should be a priority.”

Safety + Accountability. Who can reasonably argue with that?
