WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has launched a new CPSC Recall App to make recall information currently on our website more accessible to consumers on their mobile devices. Consumers can use the app to search quickly and find out whether a specific product has been recalled.
“At CPSC we are looking for ways to improve how consumers can access information about recalls,” said CPSC Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle. “I encourage consumers to download CPSC’s Recall App today, and let us know how we can make it better.”
CPSC’s Recall App was developed internally, using Progressive Web App technology with CPSC’s Recalls Data API. The new CPSC Recall App beta is available for download free on CPSC.gov.
About the U.S. CPSC
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
