In order to provide consumers with the most up-to-date information on defective products, the U.S. government created an online resource for recalls that compiles recalls from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), United States Coast Guard, U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Each agency is responsible for monitoring products and reporting recalls in specific categories. Those categories include consumer products, motor vehicles, boats, food, medicine, cosmetics, and environmental products. The products that are recalled are shipped all over the country, so it’s important to be aware of items that have recently been designated as defective.
When defective products result in injuries, legal action can be taken. Our lawyers can help victims seek compensation through the litigation process.
