Privacy Policy, Terms of Use, and Voluntary Public Disclaimers

Terms of Use

We collect, curate, edit, and write this content – and give it away for free – so consumers can have a one-stop, non-government resource to learn about recalls; engage in discussions about recalled products, and the government agencies responsible for them; and to voice their opinions in a public forum regarding any product on the market that could be harming consumers. In exchange, we ask that you agree to our terms of use, which is outlined below.

US Recall News is a non-government agency.
Our goal is to bring you the most up-to-date recall information all in one place with an easy-to-use website and modern features like RSS and email subscriptions and a searchable database of recalls. However, we cannot guarantee that 100% of recalls are contained within our database. We always suggest that consumers contact the governing agency for more information about product, drug, food or auto recalls or adverse events. Below are the major government agencies in charge of recalls within the United States:

Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC): In charge of consumer product recalls, such as toys, appliances, clothing, accessories, cribs, strollers and more. They accept reports of incidents with infant and toddler car seats, as does the NHTSA (see below).

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA): In charge of all vehicles and vehicle parts and accessories. Some defective product reports, such as those for aftermarket auto accessories and safety devices, may also be accepted by the CPSC (see above).

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA): In charge of meat, vegetables, fruit, dairy and other agricultural products sold within the United States. The FDA (see below) may also accept some of these reports.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA): In charge of food and drug products sold within the United States. Some agricultural product adverse event reports may also be accepted by the USDA.

It is fine for you to quote a small amount of a Post, custom Recall Alert or story in order to comment on it in your own way. We are strong believers in free speech and have no problem with editorial use of a short paragraph or a few lines for commentary if attributed to us with a followable hyperlink to the page on which the content was found. Fair use of our content under law restricts those who want to reference it to reproduce no more than a headline and up to a couple of paragraphs, or a summary of the story.

While this service is free to our visitors who feel they have been injured by a defective or recalled product, we reserve the right to charge legal professionals and their partners for the service of providing them with appropriate referrals from our contact forms. This, along with Google Adsense, affiliate programs, banner ads and other commercial relationships is how we generate revenue.
