Woman with Car Trouble on Her Cell PhoneYour BBB constantly updates our database with consumer buying and safety information.

With so many product recalls recently making the news, we thought we would provide links to some of them, and the main web sites where they can be found. Recalls fall in to two categories; those recalled by the manufacturer, and those recalled by the U.S. Government. One place to start is the Consumer Product Safety Commission at 800-638-2772 (TTY 301-595-7054 from 8AM-5:30PM Eastern).  View Safety Guides and report unsafe products at www.saferproducts.gov.

Six federal agencies joined together for US Government recalls www.recalls.gov.

Find links to Consumer Product Recalls from the Consumer Product Safety commission (CPSC.gov), Motor Vehicle Recalls from the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA) at SaferCar.gov, Boat Recalls from the U.S. Coastguard (USCG.mil), Food Recalls from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA.gov), Medicine Recalls and Cosmetic Recalls from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA.gov), Environmental Product Recalls from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA.gov), and the most recent government recalls.
