Identifying Recalled Products

Identifying recalled products isn’t always easy. CPSC has prepared a video for you to watch and learn how to determine if a product you have’s been recalled.

What to Do

In general, if you have a recalled item you’ll want to contact the retailer or manufacturer. They will replace or repair the item, or issue a refund or credit. Most recalled food items should simply be thrown out.

If you’ve been injured by a consumer product, or feel you’ve been sickened by a food or drug, you should keep the item in a safe and secure place. You may need it as evidence for a products liability claim, and a government agency might want to examine it as well. In any case you should contact a good products liability lawyer if you have any questions about your legal rights.
