Staying informed about child product recalls is critical, but it is no small task. Launched in June, WeMakeItSafer.com is a user-friendly online tool designed to make recall information easier to obtain. The site features an image gallery, allowing parents and caregivers to quickly skim through images of recalled products rather than comb through CPSC’s extensive text listings. A built-in electronic system can also check a reseller’s entire inventory for recalled products, preventing the circulation of donated and second-hand items.
WeMakeItSafe.com is a handy addition to existing product recall resources. Be sure to sign up for CPSC’s Email Annoucements of all recalls (Spanish version available) and KID’s monthly Email Alerts listing all child product recalls and safety information.
