What Is A Defective Product?

A defect is something that makes a product unreasonably dangerous to use as intended.

Three types of “defects”:

  1. Manufacturing defects

  2. Design defects

  3. Inadequate warnings/marketing defects


Manufacturing Defect

When a product does not perform as intended because there was an error or mistake during the manufacturing process then you have a defect in manufacturing. For example, processed food that is contaminated because of a dirty machine.

Design Defect

When a product is used as intended, but still causes injury then you have a defect in design. For example, a machine that does not have any safety guards.

Failure To Warn/Inadequate Warnings

When a manufacturer fails to notify consumers the dangers of using their product then you have a defect in the warnings. For example, a prescription drug that causes heart attacks, but contains no such warning in the label.
