Product Recall Tips and Information

CPSC This holiday season, your children will be getting gifts from family and friends. Your little ones will be excited, and they will want to play with and use the gifts that they get. Not so fast. There are thousands of products that are recalled every year and could pose a serious threat to the health and safety of your child. Here are some tips when it comes to recalls.

They Do Not Expire

It’s important to keep in mind that recalls don’t expire. This is especially important to remember if your children are receiving hand-me-downs or thrift-shop items for the holidays. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with giving gifts obtained in either of these ways, you must still remember to check for any recalls on that item.

Gift Receipts

It isn’t always required that you have a receipt to show proof of purchase for an item that has been recalled, but it never hurts to have one just in case. Having a receipt may simply mean the difference in getting your money back in the exact amount that you paid for the item, or getting compensation in the amount that the manufacturer deems appropriate.

Follow Instructions

If you find out that a gift your child has been given has been recalled, follow any given instructions to have the item repaired or returned to the manufacturer. Failure to follow instructions carefully may stall the process of having the item fixed or replaced.

Where to Check

There are several websites that will tell you which products have been recalled. One of the most comprehensive sites is This site keeps a comprehensive listing of recalled products as released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the National Highway Traffic Administration and the Food and Drug Administration. Recall lists on the site are put together by month and year, making it easy to locate the latest recalls. You can also sign up for newsletters from the site if you choose to do so.
