Americans Out of the Loop When It Comes to Recalls

untitledAccording to a new poll from Consumer Reports, only one-fifth of Americans are aware they purchased a recalled product (other than a car) in the past three years. The results of the poll, which will be fully released later today, also show that while recalls are important to the majority of Americans, many aren’t so sure how and where to access important breaking news regarding the faulty products that may have been brought into their homes.

If you find yourself in this boat, rest assured that there are many resources available to you, including the National School Safety Coalition. This new organization, backed by notable groups like the National School Boards Association, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, delivers vital recall information fast to schools and parents via web and mobile safety alerts on children’s products including toys, food, medicines, and furniture. Keep your child out of danger by staying connected at clickcheckand protect.org, a micro-site of Consumer Reports developed by the coalition with all of the very latest recall information (be sure your kid’s school is aware of the site, too!).

You can also stay up to date on the latest recalls and make sure make sure your baby’s and kid’s toys and gear are safe by visiting Parents.com/recalls.
