They Knew and Failed To: A Report on Dangerous Products

The internet, newspapers and television are filled with attacks on your rights as a consumer, as a worker, or as a citizen to seek justice in a courtroom from wrongdoers who cause damage to you. It comes as no surprise that these attacks are almost always from big business: oil companies, tobacco companies, drug companies, insurance companies, and others who seek to avoid any kind of responsibility when they've profited by cutting corners with peoples' health and safety.

Here is a link to a fascinating report discussing some of the many products that manufacturers continued to market and sell even after they knew their products would cause illness, injury, or death. The products noted include several dangerous drugs, medical devices, cars and car parts, food, as well as asbestos and other cancer-causing toxins. This report also discusses how these manufacturers were ultimately brought to justice.
