FDA and CPSC Product Recalls

Catch the tail end of a news report on a drug you’re taking? If there’s something to worry about, chances are the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued an alert. The FDA keeps a running archive of drug warnings and food and drug recalls.

Before you dig out that old car seat for visiting relatives to use, you might want to make sure it never landed on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s recall list. The CPSC offers a database of recalls covering products from microwaves to car seats to bike helmets.
