CPSC Recalls: Where to Get Information

cpsc

August 8, 2013 - Each week, we post the toy (and child-related) recalls from the Consumer Product Safety Commission web site. They offer an email service to let you know about their recalls, but this week, they sent this out with other ways to keep up with the recall announcements:

When we first launched CPSC recall e-mails, many other electronic forms of communications didn't exist. Now that so many of you receive information in multiple ways, we want to make sure you know all the ways you can receive recall information from CPSC.

1. Twitter @OnSafety: We post nearly all recalls and all news releases on our Twitter feed. You'll also receive important safety messages, tips and other information. Url: https://twitter.com/onsafety

2. Flickr: Photos are a priority for us, as they help you identify if you own a recalled product. You can find the photos of many recalled products on our Flickr page. Url: http://www.flickr.com/photos/uscpsc
