Melt, explode and even burst into flames: research questions the reliability of dozens of Amazon Basics products
If you are one of those people who love to buy on the internet, you probably have at Home Something from the giant Amazon and more specifically, some of the more than 5,000 products offered by AmazonBasics.
But what if they explode, melt or even set fires?
Since 2016, numerous reviews on its website have highlighted the danger of some of these products of the e-commerce giant.
At least 70 of his articles have experienced such problems in the United States, with more than 1,500 complaint reviews. However, not all are still on sale.
AmazonBasics, an own production line launched in 2009, manufactures everyday items, such as household appliances, office or home accessories, often similar to those best-selling by other brands. The philosophy is simple: maintain quality but sell at a much lower price, at least in theory.
In recent months, sales of many of these products, which reach even ratings of more than 4 stars, have skyrocketed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the need or obligation to stay at home or even telework.
Currently only 30 listed products listed as "hazardous" remain available in Amazon.com, while many others were removed after CNN reported these defective items.
So far, the company has ruled only on 8 of these products, stating that they had been investigated, but claimed that they met and even exceeded all safety standards.
One of them was a microwave that ended up on fire, according to a customer who purchased the product through Amazon's official website.
CNN decided to test it, so it was sent to researchers at the fault analysis laboratory at the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland.
As soon as you turn it on, the appliance started to produce sparks and release smoke, probably because the design of the panel that covers the device was not in optimal condition, so there could be food debris or fat accumulated behind it and cause a fire.
"There is a risk when using this appliance, and it is a safety risk because it has clearly heated to the point where it could cause a fire," said CALCE's engineering professor and founder, Michael Pecht. "This is more than a reliability problem, it's a potential security problem."
The microwave in question was launched in the fall of 2018 and, since then, has been one of the best sellers on the website, with more than 3,000 reviews, of which only 5% have been to report problems.
Since the company attributed these percentages to that being a product so sold and commented, It is more likely to acquire more negative reviews.
But the microwave is not the only dangerous product on the list, there are others such as a USB cable that burst into flames inside a parked car with a child inside, paper shredders that ignited themselves and that came to explode, or a surge protector that turned into a blowtorch.
These are some of the verified reviews of products from AmazonBasics, that is, they were purchased on the official website and still posed a safety hazard.
If you believed that most of the products in this Amazon line came from the United States, you are very wrong. Only 10% of its suppliers come from the American country, while the rest are manufactured in Asia, and more specifically in China, according to 3 of the company's experts told CNN.
AmazonBasics puts its items on sale in two ways, according to former company manager Rachel Greer, who left the company in 2015: going directly to manufacturers to meet their standards and working side by side with them or finding an existing product and hiring a third-party company to finally include it in their line.
In addition, Greer adds that in the second case, Amazon is less involved in quality and safety testing, as it has less knowledge of the manufacturing process.
"When you're in charge of compliance with something that has the Amazon brand, it shouldn't be something you can play with," Greer says. "When you outsource production, there are a lot of things that can go wrong," Greer tells CNN, who says that before leaving the company, the other product managers pushed for the items to go on the market too quickly.
However, the internet giant denies it and emphasizes that it does verify security standards regardless of the business model.
It also adds that a number of steps are followed to verify your safety, such as selecting experienced manufacturers, monitoring customer feedback, and testing items to ensure they pass safety and compliance standards both before and after they become available.
