  • releases -- All CPSC press releases, including recalls
  • recalls -- Recalls only
  • calendar -- CPSC Public Calendar only
  • psr -- Notifies when a new issue of the Consumer Product Safety Review has been published
  • child -- Only those recalls relating to children and infants
  • recreation -- only those recalls relating to sports and recreation
  • outdoor -- only those recalls relating to outdoor use products
  • household -- only those recalls relating to household products

2. Prepare a new email message to: lyris@list.cpsc.gov

 

3. To subscribe, type the following (substituting for "listname") in the SUBJECT line:

join listname (where listname = all, releases, recalls, calendar, cpsr, child, recreation, outdoor, household, or specialty)

 

4. To unsubscribe, type the following (substituting for "listname") in the SUBJECT line:

leave listname (where listname = all, releases, recalls, calendar, cpsr, child, recreation, outdoor, household, or specialty)

5. If subscribing, you will get an email requesting confirmation. If unsubscribing, your message must come from your address on our list. If you cannot do this, send a blank email to your personal unsubscribe address (at the end of every list message), or contact the list administrator (webteam@cpsc.gov)
