CPSC Product Recalls

Product recalls and defects

Our product liability attorneys have experience litigating cases involving hundreds of different products, including industrial machinery, automobiles, and common residential and commercial appliances such as dehumidifiers, sump pumps, space heaters, fire compression systems, and more. Recently, we have litigated product liability matters involving residential and commercial appliances, gas explosions, cellulose insulation, and sprinkler, plumbing and other water losses.

Consumer Product Safety Commission product recalls

We are seeing an increase in property damage caused by water and fire as a direct result of a defective product. As a property adjuster, you are familiar with losses caused by defective products. Therefore, we are trying to work with you to bundle these files to increase the settlement value and decrease your operational costs associated with adjusting each claim. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released the following product recalls:

Per the CPSC, the internal circuit board components can overheat, posing a fire hazard. 

This recall involves the Russound MCA-88 Multizone Controller Amplifier that provides up to eight zones of distributed audio. The controller measures about 17 inches wide by 3.5 inches high by 17.2 inches deep and weighs 28.8 pounds. The unit has model number MCA-88 on the front of the housing. The units that are subject to recall have serial numbers that begin with four digits ranging from 2047 through 2307. The serial numbers are located on a visible label on the front of the unit under the clear plastic cover. “Russound” is printed on the front of the amplifier.

Product recalls

Distinguishing a solid file for recovery can be complicated. When a defective product causes a loss, the manufacturer of the product, the wholesaler, and the distributor may be liable. To know under what circumstance these parties can be held liable is equally demanding. When files such as these arrive and you are wondering who is responsible for the damages the product caused, contact us. We will help you identify claims with subrogation potential, propose a plan to identify the responsible third party and work toward recovery.
