Viking Range Corp. to Pay Fine for Not Reporting Product Defect

If you were injured by a defective product, please call Kirk Sanders at 336-724-4707 to discuss your potential claim.

It's important in a products liability claim that you not alter the product. Do not clean it. Keep it stored. An investigator will need to examine the product for possible defects.

See below for information on Viking's failure to report a defective refrigerator door.

 

The Viking Range Corporation has agreed to pay $450,000 in civil penalties for failing to report defects in one of its refrigerator lines that led to consumer injuries. The company recalled the products in June 2009, but an investigation discovered that injuries had been reported to Viking several years before the recall was issued. Federal law requires manufacturers, distributors and retailers to report information supporting potential injury risks within 24 hours.  Staff Report, PR Newswire  07/06/2011
