Keeping Up With Recalls: How do you track them?
I don't know about you, but I can't keep up with what's being recalled when. Not necessarily because there are so many - though that's part of it - but because of the usual issues of time, memory and access to information. I read about two current recalls in the O this morning: crib mattresses and infant formula. Neither apply to me at the moment, but...I had to wonder, what else is being recalled that does affect me that I am completely unaware of?
You can always check the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Council web site - they have two children's categories worth following: toys and other child products. But better yet, you can RSS just these two lists. Sadly, it's the best RSS I've signed up for yet.
But just to make it a wee bit more difficult, food products (like infant formula) are monitored and recalled by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, so you need to check there, too. Ugh. But alas, you can RSS that, too! How do you track this stuff?
