It is a well-accepted fact that consumers rely on the claims of manufacturers on the efficacy and safety of their products. This is almost always the case with regards to pharmaceutical devices/medications, baby products and cars. People assume that these products are safe to use since they were approved by United States government agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Likewise, they believe that these products pass through stringent quality control procedures and have been thoroughly tested before they are marketed.
However this does not always hold true. As a result, these medications, products, and devices may cause problems for those who use them. Pharmaceutical companies spend millions in research and development just to come out with ‘pioneering’ & ‘breakthrough’ drugs and devices. Manufacturers take pride in being the first to introduce innovative products to the market. However, it is the consumer that ultimately pays the price for shortcuts, rushed products, and manufacturing flaws.
While it is true that they conduct tests and trials, these are not enough to truly guarantee the safety and efficacy of the product. Most, if not all, companies vie for the honor of being the first to market a drug or device or produce innovative products & devices in pursuit of huge sales and profit. Eliminating side effects and defects, or ensuring long term safety often takes a backseat to being "first to market".
