Best Buy Settles Recalled Product Case
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Best Buy Co., Inc., is agreeing to pay 3.8 million dollars in a civil penalty after
knowingly selling products that had previously been recalled due to fire
hazards. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that Best
Buy distributed and sold 16 products, ranging from electronics to cameras
to appliances, which had open recalls from 2010 through 2015. Many consumers
had reported fire hazards and irritation to skin after use. The Canon
EOS Rebel T4i digital camera was the most popular selling recalled item.
Best Buy has stated that they will implement a compliance program to monitor,
track and disposal of recalled items.
Federal Law bans the sale of any product that has been recalled, and it
is very disheartening that a major retailer knowingly sold products that
could potentially harm consumers. Luckily, consumers are protected by
product liability laws. Anyone who has suffered an injury by a product
will need to immediately contact a product liability lawyer. It is necessary
to understand your rights as a consumer and the attorneys at Meyerkord
and Meyerkord, LLC can help hold the company liable for your injuries
that resulted from their recalled product.
