According to a news report posted on CBSNews.com, safety advocates are urging parents to pay attention to product recalls keeping their families safe. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that it recalls food and household products several times a week. Unfortunately, its warnings are often ignored by the public, which can compromise their family’s safety.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Patty Davis, the CPSC doesn’t take product recalls lightly. She stated that product recalls are crucial because the products are only recalled when they pose risks of injuries and/or fatalities. In fact, the CPSC does not put out recall warnings very often. According to Davis, the CPSP announces recalls of only 200 different products each year. Davis also stated that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration handles recalls involving food, medicines, and medical devices. The CPSC on deals with recalls affecting household items such as toys, bicycles, electrical devices, furniture, and machinery. She also warned that these product recalls are serious and can cause fires, burns, injuries, or death. This is why it’s important for people to pay attention to safety recalls.
The CPSC has created an app to inform people about new and existing recalls through their mobile app. The app will also send alerts by email.
The CPSC’s recall app and website have search functions so people can search for specific products to see if they have been recalled. In some cases, the CPSC will make recommendations or inform purchasers of recalled products about remedies, replacements, or refunds.
