The product that fail miserably, throughout the year(s?) should be
declared "unfit for purpose" .......like an expired food which is
harmful for health.

Basically it is an interesting thought. I see a challenge though. Is 3
failures per year miserable? Or should we raise the limit to 10? Or lower it
to 1? You get the point. The criteria to determine if a product fails
miserably is not a fact, but a decision.
Comparing it with expired food: I throw away food before the expiration date
because I can see the fungus on it and decide it is not safe to eat it. On
the other hand I consume food way after the expiration date because it is
perfectly fine food. This error margin is caused by the statistics behind
the expiration date: be on the safe side and prefer the chance to throw away
good food than the chance to accept bad food.

If its a "technological problem" overall, maybe they should move to
application white-listing or something better.......

Sure, awareness and thinking is better. But some people don't think and than
"technological measures" is about all the protection they really have.
