Consumers have certain rights in the U.S., chief among them is the right to safe products. According to federal law, manufacturers are required to test certain consumer products before they hit the market to ensure they are safe to use or consume. However, not every product you see on store shelves has been tested, and it’s often those rushed products that cause the most harm to consumers.
Take e-cigarettes for instance. Over the past couple years, vaping has become a national phenomenon. Credited with being a safer alternative to cigarette smoking, vaping devices have flooded the market without proper testing beforehand in many cases. To date, there have been hundreds of incidents reported of these devices catching fire or exploding while being charged or in use, severely injuring the user. It makes you wonder how such dangerous products ever made it to the marketplace.
