Types of Manufacturing Defects
The improper construction of products is sadly found in many industries, for instance cars may be assembled incorrectly, causing thousands of injuries.

- Use of low-quality materials
- Improper assembly
- Lack of oversight
- Failure to follow safety regulations
- Use of hazardous substances, such as mercury or lead in excessive amounts
