Do all those product recalls make you nervous? I was shocked one day when I went shopping at a major retailer and happened to look over at the “recall board”. A toy we had just received as a gift was up there. This was a little baby rattle, and it wasn't something I would be on high alert for, like a crib. I was able to return the rattle for a newer model, but it left me wondering: how can I stay informed in the future?
Thankfully, I just found out that the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has an mailing list that will keep you informed of any infant and child product recalls. It's very easy to sign up, and I now have some security knowing that I'll be informed in case I own the next product that's recalled.
