Stay informed about product recalls

Consumer Reports News: October 17, 2007 01:00 PM

As we've reported in the past, U.S. consumers often are unaware about the recalls of products they own.

An easy way to keep apprised of recalls is to sign up for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's notification system. You should also subscribe to the Consumer Reports On Safety Blog, whose experts will not only give you their perspective on the latest recalls but also provide their advice and insight on safety matters that affect you.

You can help us inform the public about consumer products with potential problems, including safety issues, by telling us about your experiences with them. Get started by reading "Report your problem products" and filling out the form here.

When you contact us, please include:
• your name and contact information, including e-mail address;
• information on the product involved, including name and/or type of product, its approximate age, model number, and where and when purchased; and
• a detailed description of your safety-related issue.

Below you'll find a listing of home-related product recalls the CPSC issued in September and October 2007 (through October 16), including one for the Sequin Glitter Candles shown above. We'll continue to update you on recalls in the Home & Yard Blog.
