Ad Law Toolkit Show A Venable PodcastIt doesn’t happen a lot, but every so often a consumer product can be revealed to be unsafe. When that happens, it can bring up questions about a company’s obligations with regard to one of its products when it becomes aware of such a situation. Host Len Gordon talks to Venable partners Erin Maus and Melissa Steinman about how U.S. law requires manufacturers, retailers, and marketers to report unsafe products to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Compliance involves monitoring complaints, reviews, and databases. Failing to report promptly incurs penalties, while voluntary recalls might prompt false advertising lawsuits.
