CPSC Releases New Recall App


WASHINGTON, Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has launched a new CPSC Recall App to make recall information currently on our website more accessible to consumers on their mobile devices. Consumers can use the app to search quickly and find out whether a specific product has been recalled.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1973 and charged with protecting the American public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury, call the CPSC hotline at 1-800-638-2772, or visit http://www.saferproducts.gov. Further recall information is available at http://www.cpsc.gov. (PRNewsfoto/U.S. Consumer Product Safety Co)

"At CPSC we are looking for ways to improve how consumers can access information about recalls," said CPSC Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle. "I encourage consumers to download CPSC's Recall App today, and let us know how we can make it better."

CPSC's Recall App was developed internally, using Progresive Web App technology with CPSC's Recalls Data API. The new CPSC Recall App beta is available for download free on CPSC.gov.



About U.S. CPSC:
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction.  Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals – contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.

Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
