Know How to Check Your Home Appliances for Manufacturer Recalls
Knowing if an appliance in your home has been subject to a manufacturer recall can make all the difference between safety and catastrophe in your home. While it may seem intimidating, trying to figure out if any of your appliances have been recalled, it’s actually much simpler than you may think. And it’s super important.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which watches over 15,000 kinds of consumer products used by the public here in the United States, provides a web site for consumers to check on which items in their home may be subject to a recall. Here is that web site.
The site makes it super easy, too, by allowing you to search by product, enter the product name, or find recalls by company. Be sure to give the site a look-over a few times a year to make sure your appliances haven’t been recalled for any potentially dangerous issues! Even the slightest factory malfunction can cause a major or threatening issue with your appliance, so keep your family and your home safe by checking in with the directory regularly!
