Most products are designed with safety in mind and pose no unusual risk to the people who may use them. However, sometimes a product poses a special risk that can result in severe injuries or death. Defective and hazardous conditions can exist in products such as machinery, tools, toys, foods, household appliances, automobiles, medical devices, and prescription drugs, just to name a few.
