We accept Sunstein's claim that people often use moral heuristics to make judgments and decisions. However, in situations that include a risk of betrayal, we disagree with Sunstein about when the relevant moral heuristic may be said to "misfire." We suggest that the moral heuristic people apply to avoid the possibility of safety-product betrayal may be reasonable.
