Three different types of defects are categorized in the laws of Product Liability in California.

The first is identified as "manufacturing defects." These defects exist when a product is of sound design, but was assembled or built improperly. For instance, the design of an electric saw might include an emergency shutoff switch. If this switch was installed improperly, and therefore didn't work, this would be an example of a manufacturing defect.
