Where to find the latest recalls

Massachusetts Law Updates 2014-10-14

According to a recent USA.gov blog, recalls are not uncommon.  Some are easy to find out about because they hit the national news, others don't get media attention but they're still important to be aware of.  Make it a habit to check these places to make sure the products you buy and the food you eat are safe:
  • Recalls.gov lists government initiated recalls from federal agencies
  • NHTSA.gov publishes safety information on vehicles and equipment such as children's car seats
  • FSIS.USDA.gov lists recalls that involve meat, poultry or processed egg products
  • FDA.gov lists recalls that involve food, medicines, medical devices, cosmetics, biologics, radiation emitting products, veterinary drugs and pet foods
If you have an issue with a product, you can report incidents and safety concerns with consumer products, or search for incidents reported by others at saferproducts.gov
