Every day we use many products in and around our home to make life easier, safer, and more enjoyable for our children and ourselves. As parents, we need to be vigilant in providing our children with the safest products on the market, from car seats to cribs, from bassinets to bicycles.
Before purchasing new or used baby gear, toys, etc., check to see if it has been recalled, or if there have been any safety issues with a particular product. You can search over 4,000 products for recall information on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website.
You can "Report an Unsafe Product" to the CPSC as well. Also, if you believe a product to be unsafe or defective, be sure to report the problem to the manufacturer.
