With dozens of food safety recalls and even more defective consumer product recalls happening each year, the FDA is now making it easier for parents and consumers to stay up-to-date on defective product recalls by embracing 21st century technology. Concerned that stores and vendors may keep selling recalled products because they miss important product recalls, the FDA wants to encourage consumers to keep themselves more informed.
There are several options for receiving consumer alerts across various media platforms:
The FDA’s RSS feed allows you to quickly read through recent defective product recalls and food safety alerts through your web browser. The Consumer Product Safety Commission also offers a similar RSS feed for defective product recalls.
The FDA is also offering a “Food Safety Alerts and Tips” widget that can be embedded in web pages and blogs. The code for this widget can be copied here.
For parents and consumers on the go, the FDA can send you text message alerts with food safety alerts and defective product recalls through USA.gov’s Android and Mobile Web apps.
