The US lawsuit against Amazon also alleges that carbon dioxide detectors do not detect carbon monoxide. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) yesterday filed a lawsuit against Amazon over the sale of hundreds of thousands of dangerous products, including carbon monoxide detectors that can detect carbon monoxide, hair dryers without shock and electrical protection and clothing. Flammable for children. The CPSC said it had sued Amazon to "withdraw" the "dangerous" products. While Amazon has already stopped selling and refunding most of them, the CPSC said it was not satisfied with the way Amazon informed customers, and said the industry giant should do more to ensure defective produ
Dangerous products are supplied by third parties using the Amazon Performance Program (FBA), where Amazon stores products in its warehouses, carries them to customers, and generates significant revenue. The CPSC lawsuit alleges that Amazon did not take sufficient responsibility for dangerous third-party products that it sends via FBA. The complaint did not mention any specific injury cases, but the evidence is said to corroborate the allegations, including "accident or injury litigation related to the various consumer products identified in the complaint." He also said that CPSC personnel tested the products and found that they did not meet safety standards. The agency said products that did not meet these requirements were severely endangered or damaged by consumers.
“The complaint is that some products are defective and threaten serious injury or death. Consumers and Amazon are legally responsible for reminding them,” the CPSC said in a statement. “Products listed include 24,000 defective carbon monoxide detectors that do not warn, several children’s pajama clothing that violates safety standards for flammable fabric and injures children, and nearly 400,000 hair dryers without immersion protection equipment,” the CPSC said in its complaint. Amazon, as a distributor of products, to stop selling these products, with the need to protect consumers. “CPSC employees should work on product recalls, notify consumers who have purchased them directly about returns and provide them with a full refund.”
“We need to deal more effectively with” massive third-party platforms and how to protect US customers who trust them better,” said Robert Adler, director of CPSC. In a statement to Ares, Amazon said it had already removed the “vast majority” of products from its online store, and offered to refund them. Amazon claims CPSC has not provided sufficient information about the remaining products. It said Amazon: “Customer safety is a top priority, and we take immediate action to protect the customer when we become aware of a safety issue.” As the CPSC complaint claims, for the vast majority of products involved, Amazon now promptly removes products from our store, notifying customers of potential safety concerns, and recommend products to customers.For the few remaining products involved, CPSC did not provide enough information to Amazon to take action, and despite our requests, CPSC remained unanswered.Amazon has an industry-leading recall app, and has suggested We are also expanding our capabilities to handle recalls of all products sold in our store, regardless of whether those products are sold or manufactured by Amazon or third-party sellers. We don't know why the CPSC declined this offer or why they filed a complaint to force us to take repetitive actions roughly what we already did.
