What To Do if You Have a Recalled Product

Oct 4 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Every year, hundreds of products are recalled by the United States Federal government. Many times, however, even after a recall, these products can be found in second hand stores, or in homes across the country.

If you have a product which you think has been recalled, check the product number against the numbers which the recall lists. These can often be found on the website for the company which manufactured your product.

If the numbers match, you should then follow the instructions given by the government or the manufacturer on where to send the product. You should no longer be using it. Instructions will differ on whether to return the product to the store where it was purchased or to the manufacturer itself.

For a complete list of recalls, check the US Consumer Product Safety Commission site
