Product recall is an effort to remove a product from the market because of safety issues or product defects that could endanger the lives of consumers and result in legal and financial risks to the maker/seller.


Product recall can be voluntary or involuntary. 


A maker/seller of a product can chose to voluntarily remove a product from the market at any time.  Doing so voluntarily is preferrable to waiting for the government to compell removal.  Makers/sellers should continually assess the safety of their products before placing them for sale and recall items after sale if a safety or product defect issue has been detected.  Doing so will place you in good standing with your customers rather than show you in a negative light.


The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is the government agency charged with overseeing the product recall program.  The product recall program is governed by many laws


To see products that have been recalled visit this website.


Visit the Small Business Resource page for the CPSC to learn more.  This page will provide you with information you need to ensure that your product is in compliance with federal consumer product safety rules.


You can go directly to the Business Education page to find information on product testing, labeling and reporting.
