CPSC Proposal Risks Delaying Recalls, Alienating Companies
Nov.15.2013 — Corporate, International Trade, Product Liability, and Public Policy Law360
Co-chair of the firm's Advertising and Product Risk Management Group, Cheryl Falvey, talks with Law360 about the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) new proposal to make voluntary recall agreements legally binding. She describes how the current "balance" with the CPSC is going to change, and that companies may now have to worry about, "the effect a legally binding agreement could have on future product liability litigation." Falvey served as CPSC general counsel under both the Bush and Obama administrations.
