Product Recalls – Do You Have a Defective Product in Your Home?
Posted on Mar 25, 2008 in National Issues, Personal Injury
Unfortunately, there are so many product recalls that it’s impossible to know whether or not everything you own – the car you drive, the toys the kids play with, the kitchen appliances you use, the food you eat – is safe.
Use common sense, and if you’ve got any concern whatsoever, check out the product over at recalls.gov. Never use any product that you’re not 100% sure is safe.
You can search for product recalls in:
- consumer products
- food, medicine, cosmetics
- motor vehicles, car seats
- environmental products
- meat and poultry products
- boats and boating safety
Really interested in recalls? Sign up for emails notifying you of future recalls from the Consumer Products Safety Commission, the Food & Drug Administration, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Remember, time is not on your side in a defective products claim ….
If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective product — do not wait to get legal advice. The law has specific deadlines, and if you miss the deadline even the worthiest claim will be time-barred.
