When Ford vehicles have an airbag problem or Kraft recalls millions of boxes of macaroni, that’s headline-worthy news. But what about the many other products that you use every day?
Fortunately, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is keeping an eye on these issues.
The CPSC is an independent federal regulatory agency charged with protecting the public from the risk of injury or death from consumer products. His responsibilities include completing product recalls and arranging a repair, replacement, or refund for the recalled products, as specified in CPSC.gov.
Under the Consumer Product Safety Act, all manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers are required to report potentially dangerous products to the federal government within 24 hours of their discovery.
The CPSC collects this information and logs these recalls under CPSC.gov/recalls. There you can scroll through recent recalls or use the search bar to find a specific product.
To make it even easier, we’ve rounded up the products that were recalled in November 2021. Check the list below to see if you own or use any of these items. You may be eligible for a refund, replacement, or repair.
Recognize product? Simply click on the word “recalled” to be directed to the appropriate page on the CPSC website. There you will find more details, including a photo of the item, the reason for the recall, the agent offered, and contact information so you can continue with the recall process.
