    Exclamation New Product Recalls Issued This Week - 3/20/09

    Here is a list of new product recalls issued this week: 3/13/09-3/20/09.

    I used to post this list weekly on Fridays in the "Coffee Break" area of the board, but the admins felt that would be better to put it in the "News" area on the board so that unregistered or new members could see the lists. Please note this list includes most recalls from CPSC, USDA, FDA, NHTSA (carseats and tires only) and boat recalls from the Coast Guard. I do not include vehicle recalls or FDA recalls related to undeclared allergens. To view all the recalls including those allergen related recalls, you can go to: http://www.recalls.gov/recent.html to see a full listing from each agency.

    It would take a long time going through that to grab pieces of each recall, but you can browse through that post to see the latest recalls. If you don't have access to that post, you can also go through the FDA website which has a link: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/script...call/index.cfm

    Thanks for putting it here, Katy. This way, even unregistered users can see the thread. You could post a link to this thread in the CMC forum so those who just expect to see it "downstairs" can find the new location.
