Checking for product recalls may save your life

Each year, defective or dangerous products injure or kill countless people across the country. Taking a few minutes to check whether the item you bought has caused injuries might prevent you or your family members from suffering the same fate.

Product defects are common

Manufacturers must recall thousands of products all the time, despite safety testing. Toys that might be safe when used properly can be dangerous in some situations, such as a toy for older children that lacks a precautionary warning for younger children on its packaging. Some products have a defect in the design or manufacturing line that causes dozens or hundreds of injuries, such as weak fabric covering an item that splits and exposes sharp metal, or faulty components in a line of vehicles that present the risk of an engine fire.

When buying gifts for children, or important items such as cars, it pays to take a few minutes to check safety ratings and whether the item has been subjected to any recalls. 

How to look up recalls

Fortunately, checking for recalls is easy. Recalls.gov is a site that compiles product recalls by numerous government agencies, including the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency. The site also provides valuable safety tips and allows you to file a report about a harmful product.

Being smart about checking recalls may significantly reduce your risk of becoming another statistic on the dangers of hazardous products.
