Defective product recall involves several air conditioners

In a product recall that affects consumers in Texas and other states, multiple air conditioner brands are being recalled. Authorities recently said each of the air conditioners is a defective product because the air conditioners' power cords have the potential to overheat. They, thus, pose a fire risk.

The air conditioners being recalled include those by the brands Century, Amana, Goodman, Comfort-Aire, and York. The recall includes room air conditioners, or RACs, sold under the Amana brand, and packaged terminal air conditioners, or PTACs, sold under all the other brands. The units being recalled are beige in color. The brand name can be found on the front cover of the unit.

These defective air conditioners were sold from January 2007 to June 2008. So far, there have been 10 reports of the PTACs catching on fire. Thousands of units are being recalled, with a whopping 230,000-plus PTACs having already been recalled in August of 2014.

When consumers in the state of Texas are injured by products determined to be defective, they have the right to take legal actions against the manufacturers of these products. An injured consumer may choose to file a product liability claim against the company, pursuing the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained through the use of the defective product. Likewise, the loved ones of a consumer who has died as a result of using a hazardous product may file a wrongful death claim, seeking damages. Liability must be established in a manner that pleases the civil court before claims for financial damages will be determined.
