@Mike, @GMATNinja, and other experts

What is the difference between 'for threatening' and 'that threatens'? How do they change the meaning ?

Thanks

hey ,
trying to put my 2 cents here, see this is just an cause and effect relationship so option A or B could be the right answer , now if we see intended meaning of the sentence we find that " for threatening" implies that the company makes it product to threatens other's so this does not fulfill the condition of cause and effect ,which should be spontaneous , so option A is wrong for this reason and B clearly states the logical meaning .

hope its clear.
press kudos if you liked it .
