Recalls…Here Is How to Find Them

GiftWhen you purchase a product, you do so with the assumption that it will be safe to use. No one plans on buying a defective product. Worse yet, no one plans on buying a dangerous product.

Unfortunately, accidents and personal injuries occur every day due to faulty products. Whether those products are cars, safety seats or even lawn equipment, countless people find that the product they used in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines failed to work as stated.

If you use your credit card to purchase a product that ends up being recalled, you will often receive a letter in the mail alerting you to the next actions to take. What happens when you pay with cash? The good news is that there are several websites that alert consumers to past and current recalls that can affect their safety and the safety of their loved ones.

Here is how to find out if a product has been recalled.

United States Consumer Product Safety Commission

The USCPSC lists the most up-to-date recalls on a variety of consumer products, including vehicles, tools, and food products. Not only does the site tell you what has been recalled, but it allows consumers to report unsafe products through this link.

Safe Kids Worldwide

Safe Kids is a website dedicated to keeping children around the world safe. By visiting this website, you will be alerted to the latest recalls on children’s products. Consumers can search the site by latest recalls or by year. The site also provides general news regarding children and children’s products.

Food and Drug Administration

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration provides a comprehensive listing of the latest recalls in the areas of animal health, food, drugs, biologics, medical devices, and cosmetics. Recalls older than 60 days are archived on the site and easily found. Like the USCPSC, the FDA allows consumers to report concerns about products that have or have not already been recalled.

National highway Traffic Safety Administration

The NHTSA lists all of the latest recalls and defects reported on motor vehicles. The list of recalls includes those for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and ATVs. You can also register your own vehicle on the administration’s app to be alerted of any safety issues released.

With the holidays approaching, you may be shopping for the friends and family in your life. Check these websites before you purchase any products to be sure that they are safe. Doing so can help to protect the people you love.

The list of prior client settlement results and client reviews/testimonials, do not constitute a promise of any particular result in any particular case, as each and every case is unique. Each case was handled on its own merit, and the outcome of any case cannot be predicted by a lawyer or law firms past results.

If a recovery or settlement by trial is made, the client will be responsible for costs advanced in addition to attorney fees. Client remains responsible for costs, expenses and disbursements, including medical bills, within the scope of representation. The attorney’s contingency percentage will be computed prior to the deduction of expenses from the total recovery.
