Publisher recalls book because of errors
On December 30, 2008, a publisher announced a recall of its book on how to electrically wire a house. The book contains several errors in the technical diagrams that could lead consumers to incorrectly install or repair electrical wiring, posing an electrical shock hazard to consumers. This recall was announced in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. There have been other recalls based on unsafe instructions in books. And there is a very interesting advisory opinion from 1974 on jurisdiction over books and problems when books encourage unsafe product use.
