In light of recent baby item recalls such as the popular Bumbo International baby seats and this week’s peanut butter recall, we’re sharing resources to help you check for recalls, which can be helpful as you prepare for a new little one.
- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is responsible for sharing information about recalls for everything from consumer products and food to transportation and medicine. They also offer helpful information for improving home safety. [http://www.cpsc.gov/]
- Find CPSC news releases in their newsroom. [http://www.cpsc.gov/pr/newsroom.html]
- Search old recalls or report an unsafe product at SaferProducts.gov. [http://saferproducts.gov/Default.aspx]
- Find food recalls at FoodSafety.gov, where you can even get text or email alerts. [http://saferproducts.gov/Default.aspx]
