|The company said Monday a few minor injuries were associated with the six separate recalls and owners would be notified of the problems by mail.|
Actually, we don't have any choice in the matter. Even slight injuries can end up in millions of dollars going out in lawsuits. There is no protection whatsoever for manufacturers, other than to immediately have a recall.
That is why we hear about recalls for possibly defective lamp bulbs and other very minor items.
I see what you mean. I suppose if they didn't do the recall, they would be subject to large lawsuits even by only one person getting hurt.
