Econometrica was retained by counsel to a manufacturer of small consumer appliances to assess the extent and severity of a hazard identified in a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recall notice and subsequent U.S. Department of Justice and CPSC lawsuits. To develop a profile of injuries associated with the recalled product, Econometrica conducted an analysis of incident reports from three CPSC hazard monitoring databases as well as data from incident reports received by the manufacturer.
