Often parents may have some apprehensions that X medicine has been recalled or that Y product or toy has been declared unsafe for use and been recalled; however they may not be aware of the details of this. Now however there is a very useful online resource available for parents; a one stop resource for all recalled items including food, toys, furniture and medications.
Recalls by manufacturers can be difficult for parents to track; however this site for consumers called Click Check Protect.org helps parents in their quest to keep kids safe by making it easy for them to access safety alerts and recall notices.
It is important to get this information but surveys have shown that parents are not confident that they are getting enough information.
Here is some sample information the site is constantly being updated with –
