Residents in Billings all rely on consumer products to get through their day. Whether it is a microwave to heat up food, a dryer to dry clothes, a stereo to listen to music or a vehicle to get to various destinations, these consumer products are purchased with the idea that they will work as intended. However, this is unfortunately not always the case. Some products might be faulty or defective, causing a relatively harmless item to become a dangerous product.
