Researching product recalls

Recalls.gov is a good starting point. The online resource has paired up with six federal agencies to become the “one-stop shop” of recalls. Click on “Recent Recalls” to “learn about action by government agencies” and find details on specific recalled items.

Cpsc.gov, the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s site, keeps you updated with  e-mail alerts. Sign up for alerts on all recalls or specific products in particular categories, from “infant/child” to “household.” The home page posts the most recent recalled products.

Consumerreports.org/safety translates “government-speak” into plain English to provide the “real deal” on significant product recalls. You can also establish an account and report safety issues online yourself.
