Dangerous Products: Children's Capes Recalled

Comments Off

Why are U.S. companies still distributing dangerous products (vinyl capes) for children? The news went out only on Halloween that 120,000 “Creepy Cape”costume capes were recalled due to their failure to meet non-flammability standards. The company selling these dangerous products from China is an American company, selling their flammable capes in California, and really should have known better. While recalls are critical to product safety, products liability is what makes manufacturers and distributors of dangerous and defective products accountable.
