Defective Products in The House

Consumers expect the products available to them at trusted retailers like Home Depot to be safe. While we might expect faulty or defective products to slip under the radar before a problem is brought to the attention of manufacturers and retailers, there’s no excuse for a major store chain like Home Depot to continue selling defective products long after safety recalls have been issued. To determine which models and model years are impacted, check the CPSC’s website for more information.
