I often get asked which product categories are at the highest risk for causing harm to people and damage to an end-user's brand. My regular answer applies a reasonable amount of common sense. It is fairly obvious that any products that appeal to children or those that go into or come in contact with our bodies carry more risk than other categories. This would prompt me to consider toys, food, personal care products and drinkware as categories you should be very concerned with who you are purchasing from and whether these categories are a true core competency for them. One caveat to this is that any product category is susceptible to social accountability issues and the resulting scandal from a Fortune 1000 company getting products that are manufactured in a factory that does not adhere to the UN Global Compact and violates human rights and child labor principles.
