It’s critical that parents heed product recalls issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). This agency reports that baby products were linked to more than 75,000 emergency room visits for children under the age of five in 2009 alone. The CPSC also asserts that an average of 88 children die annually as a result of baby product-related accidents.
By visiting the CPSC website on a weekly basis, parents can be aware of product recalls to curb any dangerous accidents with an unsafe product. Email updates are also available, providing up-to-the-minute press releases regarding product recalls
So if a product you own is being recalled, the best thing to do is to quickly get that product out of your home. The danger of having a faulty product in your house is not worth the loss of a family member.
