Are my baby’s toys dangerous? Is the crib safe? I have that recalled car seat, now what?
The editors of Parents magazine’s website, Parents.com, invited me to explain the process and help demystify the recall experience.
As someone who has written about recalls since the 1990s and a parent, I understand how confusing it can be. I also know how many people tune out the potential dangers.
If you’re parent, a grandparent or anyone who takes care of children, I hope you’ll find the series I wrote for Parents.com to be a simple guide to how you should view product safety:
- What is a recall
- Why so many recalls are children’s products
- What to do if you have a recalled product
- Five dangerous products you should get out of your home
