Safety Recalls and Alerts
 
Safety recalls and alerts are issued frequently for a wide variety of products that impact our daily lives.  This web resource provides information and links for many of these recalls and the agencies that issue them.
 
Consumer Report 
 
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission  is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction.  The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure children.

FDA 
 
The Food and Drug Administration  is one of the nation's oldest and most respected consumer protection agencies. Stated most simply, FDA's mission is to promote and protect the public health by helping safe and effective products reach the market in a timely way, to monitor products for continued safety after they are in use, and to help the public get the accurate, science-based information needed to improve health.

Recalls.Gov 
Federal agencies have been asked to streamline communications with the public and improve inter-agency information sharing in order to enhance public security.   Therefore, to provide better service in alerting the public to unsafe, hazardous or defective products, six federal agencies with vastly different jurisdictions have joined together to create –www.Recalls.gov - a "one stop shop" for many U.S. Government recalls.
