What Should I Do If A Product I Own Is Recalled?
If you own a product that has been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) or the company that sold or manufactured the item, don’t panic. First and foremost, stop using the product. Secondly, read the official recall information provided on the CPSC website to determine why the product is dangerous and why it is being recalled. Next, contact the manufacturer to ask for further instruction. In most cases, they will offer you a refund, a new product, or a repair kit. They will also let you know how to dispose of the product if needed. If you or a family member has been injured because of the recalled product, it is vital to see a doctor, document the accident, report the injury, and speak with a defective product attorney.
