U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Social Media

When we first launched CPSC recall e-mails, many other electronic forms of
communications didn't exist.
Now that so many of you receive information in multiple ways, we want to
make sure you know all the ways you can receive recall information from

1. Twitter @OnSafety: We post nearly all recalls and all news releases on
our 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 us, as they help you identify if you
own a recalled product. You can find the photos of many recalled products on
our Flickr page. Url: http://www.flickr.com/photos/uscpsc

3. Google+: CPSC recently launched a page on Google+. We are still
experimenting with how many recalls we post on this page and are open your
thoughts on what you want to see here. For now, we're posting Recall
Roundups and some of our larger recalls on Google+. Url:

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. We encourage you to search
SaferProducts.gov for products you own or are thinking of buying to see what
others have told us about those products.
