The Consumer Product Safety Commission does a great job of getting the word out about product recalls. Nearly every day, the CPSC issues important product recalls. Sometimes, there are two or more per day. More and more people are becoming aware of product recalls. But my worry is that with so much information and daily recall notices, people begin to shut off their brains and don't listen - information overload or attention deficiency.
As a lawyer with children, I pay attention to product recalls, especially anything my children play with or otherwise come into contact with. In other words, paying attention to product recalls is part of both of my jobs. Double duty, if you will. But if I wasn't a lawyer, I don't know how I would even know about recalls.
I register any product which comes with a product registration, but I know many people who don't. Several years ago, I received a recall notice about my child's play pen. Due to a defective pin, the pen could collapse inward. Instead of opting to have the pin replaced, I threw the play pen away. This was the only time I've ever received a notice in the mail. Instead, I rely on email recall notices from the CPSC. I get them daily, sometimes twice a day. Visit the CPSC website and sign up to receive recall notices here.
I worry about folks who don't register products and folks who don't pay attention to product recall notices. For more information about what to do about product recall notices, click here.
