In a perfect world, we’d all be safe from stubbed toes and paper cuts, broken bones and oven burns. But it’s not a perfect world, and Americans seem to be constantly at risk.
Household products cause millions of injuries in the U.S. each year. These injuries are the result of accidents, and can’t always be avoided, but the experts at HealthGrove believe you’re better safe than sorry. So, they’ve set out to create a list of the most dangerous products in America.
Using the most recent available data on product injuries from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, HealthGrove used annual injury reports from 1997-2014 to calculate the average number of injuries caused by a product in a given year.
The list is ranked by average number of injuries per year. To see which of your favorite products might kill you, look no further. Click here for the report.
