WEEK 4 DISCUSSION – “Product Liability and Advertising” Please respond to the following:
- The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) helps to promote and ensure product safety today. Identify and explain the law regarding products liability and, provide an example of a persuasive advertisement within the last year that was in violation of either an expressed product warranty or implied warranty. See Section 13-2 examples of “Advertising as a Contract Basis for Product Liability” of the text reading. Provide support for your response.
- Research the Internet or the Strayer Library for information about the latest activities by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Analyze the current state of government regulation for product safety to determine whether each administrative agency is generally proactive or reactive. Provide one specific example within the last year from each agency.
