In the age of superstores and mega warehouse retailers, a hidden danger lurks above all the consumers that enter its stores: the threat of suffering serious injuries and even death due to falling merchandise.   Every year in the U.S., thousands of consumers are hurt and even killed due to falling merchandise.  Retailers such as Home Depot, Wal-Mart, BJ's, Costco, Sam's Club, Loews, Target and many others have come under scrutiny for thousands of preventable injuries and fatalities caused by their stacking and stocking of store merchandise on high shelves.  For instance, Wal-Mart recently admitted that during a five year period from 1989-1994; over 17,000 falling merchandise complaints were filed against the company.  Home Depot also reported that in the year 2000, three consumers were killed in three distinct incidents when high stacked merchandise fell striking the consumers.  

Consumer lobbying groups are fighting to require retailers to install safety nets and guardrail systems to help prevent falling merchandise from injuring or killing their unsuspecting consumers.
