Main Document

A product recall is defined as a request to return a product after the discovery of safety issues or product defects that might endanger the consumer or put the maker/seller at risk of legal action. To provide better service in alerting the American people to unsafe, hazardous or defective products, six federal agencies with vastly different jurisdictions have joined to create www.recalls.gov - a "one-stop shop" for U.S. Government recalls.

Disabled World helps enhance consumer safety by providing current product recall and advisory information based on notifications provided as a service to health professionals, consumers, and other interested parties.
