Every year, hundreds of products are taken off shelves and out of the market
overall due to being too dangerous for safe use. Products can be dangerously
defective due to design, a manufacturing error, lack of instructions given
to the consumer, and so forth. The Consumer Product Safety Commission
(CPSC) is tasked with identifying these defects, or reviewing products
reported as defective by consumers, and creating mandatory recalls in response.
