News stories about unsafe products are not uncommon, but only a fraction of product safety recalls receive widespread reporting. Even if the risk of harm is serious, the dangers of obscure brands or products may not be made known through conventional media. How can you know what products are unsafe?
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is tasked with “protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of types of consumer products” it oversees. In addition to providing reams of informational resources, the agency tracks and compiles recall information on myriad unsafe products. You can sign up for a daily email listing all new product recalls, or those focusing on certain categories.
The CPSC is an invaluable resource for learning about consumer product safety.
