In the U.S., we have laws to protect people who are hurt by product defects. Not only do we have safety agencies like the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but they can require companies to recall products with dangerous design or production faults. We also have the product liability lawsuit, which can hold manufacturers, distributors and even retailers financially liable for allowing faulty products into the stream of commerce.

Unfortunately, that's the highest percentage yet reported on the survey.
