A new recall for The Honest Company

Of all of the products that consumers buy, those that are used by and on our children are probably the ones where safety is the most paramount.

What kinds of defects give rise to product liability claims?

American consumers rely on the safety of everyday products that they purchase at department stores, that are prescribed to them by their doctors, and that they incorporate into their routine lives.

What is a defect in warnings for product liability claims?

Manufacturers and others who are associated with the design, manufacture and sale of items are responsible for making sure that people who are purchasing the items know what safety hazards exist with the products.
