Consumer products are often recalled due to malfunctions and safety issues. If your appliance is faulty and poses a fire hazard, or a children’s product is dangerous to your family, time is of the essence. You can find this important, up-to-date information online or even have it emailed to you on a regular basis.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is an independent government agency with federal authority to regulate the sale and manufacture of over 15,000 different consumer products. In order to pass along the results of their work, the CPSC regularly posts safety and recall information online at www.cpsc.gov .
You can also sign up to receive recall notices via email and have the option to limit the notifications to those of your choosing.
