When the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) first launched ecall e-mails, many other electronic forms of communications didn't exist. Now the info is available in multiple ways.
1. Twitter @OnSafety: CPSC posts nearly all recalls and all news releases on its Twitter feed. You'll also receive important safety messages, tips and other information. Url: https://twitter.com/onsafety
2. Flickr: Photos are a priority for CPSC, as they help you identify if you own a recalled product. You can find the photos of many recalled products on its Flickr page. Url: www.flickr.com/photos/uscpsc
3. Google+: CPSC recently launched a page on Google+. CPSC is still experimenting with how many recalls they post on this page and are open to thoughts on what you want to see here. For now, they're posting Recall Roundups and some of the larger recalls on Google+. Url: http://bit.ly/14ZhXNL
In addition to these social media platforms CPSC posts all recalls on its website at www.cpsc.gov/recalls. Recalls and Consumer Safety Reports are available on www.SaferProducts.gov.
