People throughout Texas rely on consumer goods to fulfill a variety of needs. Whether people are purchasing food, medicine, makeup or clothes, they expect that the products are safe for consumer use. While more often than not, consumer goods are perfectly safe, there are situations where consumer products present risks to individuals. Product labels are an important part of helping to identify specific risks that a product might pose to an individual.
