Visit the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Website
to check on recalls of products that may prove to be hazardous to you
and to your family:
United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is an independent agency of the United States Government created in 1972
to regulate the sale and manufacture of more than 15,000 different consumer
products, from cribs to all-terrain vehicles. CPSC fulfills its mission
by banning dangerous consumer products, issuing recalls of products already
on the market, and researching potential hazards associated with consumer
products. CPSC learns about unsafe products in several ways. The agency
maintains a consumer hot line and website through which consumers may
report concerns about unsafe products or injuries associated with products.
The agency also operates the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System
(NEISS), a probability sample of about 100 hospitals with 24-hour emergency
rooms. NEISS collects data on consumer product related injuries treated
in ERs and can be used to generate national estimates.
