Good day my fellow sparktainians. I just got this email forn the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) about new and easier ways to recieve Recall notices. CPSC is responisible for all the product safety recalls regarding product we buy and use every day. Although I have posted only notices regarding recalled electrical products, there are many more that i do not post. A majoity of the recalls involve kids and baby clothing, toys, and furniture. They are usually deem unsafe because of faulty design that can cause injury or they do not meet the requirement for lead.

You can customize what information you recieve and with the addition of multiple electronic media that is available, it is easier than ever to recieve notices that fit your techno life style. Feel free to share with any one and every one. Have a good day and stay safe:

When we first launched CPSC recall e-mails, many other electronic forms of communications didn't exist.
Now that so many of you receive information in multiple ways, we want to make sure you know all the ways you can receive recall information from CPSC.

1. Twitter @OnSafety: We post nearly all recalls and all news releases on our Twitter feed. You'll also receive important safety messages, tips and other information. Url:

2. Flickr: Photos are a priority for us, as they help you identify if you own a recalled product. You can find the photos of many recalled products on our Flickr page. Url:

3. Google+: CPSC recently launched a page on Google+. We are still experimenting with how many recalls we post on this page and are open your thoughts on what you want to see here. For now, we're posting Recall Roundups and some of our larger recalls on Google+. Url:

In addition to these social media platforms CPSC posts all recalls on its website at Recalls and Consumer Safety Reports are available on We encourage you to search for products you own or are thinking of buying to see what others have told us about those products.
