Recall List - Resale Round-up

Product Recalls


Updated September 02, 2009

Being aware of recalls from the Consumer Product Safety Commission can help you to keep unsafe products away from your kids. Unfortunately, many dangerous products on their recall list continue to be sold at garage sales, resale stores, and on the internet, and parents sometimes miss the original recall announcement. This resale round-up is designed to raise awareness about these previously recalled products so that you can get them out of your home and don't try to buy or sell a recalled product at a garage sale, thrift store, or on ebay, etc.
