Amazon sells far too many dangerous products?

Time to hold  Amazon  responsible for dangerous products, e.g.,  Chinese made  motorcycle helmets which crack on  impact and magnetic toys  with no labels which children swallow? Eee-gads.

True story published in the Wall Street Journal:    A mom bought  a motorcycle  helmet on Amazon for her  son who died when  he collided with a car.   This motorcycle helmet was labeled safe according to  USA federal  standards.  Not safe,  the helmet  was   made in China and re-sold on Amazon  by a tiny outfit in California  When tested, these Chinese made  motorcycle   helmets crack on impact.   There’s about 4,000+ of these   helmets still in circulation.

Former Amazon employee Rachael Johnson Greer managed Amazon’s safety systems until 2015.  For a number of years the  safety section at Amazon consisted of three persons.    Greer now advises third-party Amazon sellers.

Rachael Greer estimates  that in 2017  roughly  80% of Amazon’s third-party sellers did not comply with federal, state or industry safety  labeling and the vast majority of issues were not having proper warnings and labels.
