Staten Island Business Bank Spotlights Online Sources for Safety-Recall Information
Keeping tabs on product recalls can help keep you and your family stay safe. With this in mind, Victory State Bank, Staten Island’s only community-based commercial bank, suggests you check that a manufacturer has not recalled a product – especially a used or secondhand one – before you purchase it.
If you are buying a product for a child, such as toys, clothing, cribs, and costume jewelry, be especially careful.
The following websites provide information on the latest on safety recalls:
- Recalls.gov lists government-initiated recalls from federal agencies. You can sign up for free e-mail notifications on recalls.
- Safercar.gov publishes safety information on vehicles and equipment such as children's car seats.
- FSIS.USDA.gov lists recalls that involve meat, sausage, poultry, and processed egg products.
- FDA.gov lists recalls that involve food (non-meat products; fruits; vegetables; seafood; shelled eggs; infant formulas), medicines, medical devices, cosmetics, biologics, radiation emitting products, veterinary drugs, and pet food.
- Foodsafety.gov publishes notices of food recalls and alerts from both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
- SaferProducts.gov allows you to report incidents and safety concerns with consumer products, and search for incidents reported by other consumers.
