Olu,
I think you may have misread what na.rm is supposed to do. I think you are getting the correct value. If you want the vectors that contain NA values to be evaluated to NA then you will need to set na.rm to FALSE (which is the default for prod()).
prod(c(7, 2, NA), na.rm = TRUE)
[1] 14
prod(c(7, 2, NA), na.rm = FALSE)
[1] NA
