Do you have recalled products in your home?


Do you have recalled products in your home such as a Venmar HRV?  There’s no doubt you noticed the occasional news report’s about a this product being recalled for safety reasons. Other examples of recalls would be, a car model with a brake problem, or a children’s toy that, under some circumstances, may cause injury.

recall productYou may not know that these news reports are merely the tip of the iceberg. For each product recall you hear about in the media, there are dozens that get little, if any, publicity. That means there may be products in your home that have been recalled — and you don’t even know about it.

It’s a scary thought.

How do you find out about recalled products that may affect you?

Here are two tips.

1. Always complete the registration that comes with many products. This is typically done by mailing in a registration card or filling out an online form. When you register, you’ll be alerted by the manufacturer if the product is recalled for any reason.

2. Both Canada and the United States have agencies that list recalled products on their websites. In Canada it’s the Healthy Canadians website at www.healthycanadians.gc.ca. In the United States it’s the Consumer Product Safety Commission at www.CPSP.gov. It’s a good habit to check these sites every season. If you discover that a product in your home has been recalled, contact the manufacturer immediately.

Never assume that the reason for the recall won’t apply to you.
