On December 2, 2014, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, in accordance with Daiken, announced a voluntary recall of their Air Purifiers Due to Fire Hazard.  The air purifier’s circuit board can overheat and cause the air purifier to catch on fire.   No incidents or injuries have been reported at this time.   The air purifiers were sold by Goodman Manufacturing and other HVAC contractors to consumers and online at from December 2010 through October 2014 for about $540.

As a consumer, safety advocate, and trial lawyer, I am continually troubled by the fact that manufacturers and retailers continue to sell dangerous products. Manufacturers, in their zeal to get products on the market, often cut corners and overlook safety when designing and manufacturing products. Manufacturers have an obligation and opportunity to thoroughly assess product safety before the launch of a product. It should not take a person to get injured for a manufacturer to make a product safe.
