Children's product recalls: February 2015

Children’s Products Recalls: February 2015

Customer safety and satisfaction is of utmost importance to everyone at, and who uses the services of, Swap.com. As an online consignment store, we want to ensure that all items that are listed are safe to all customers who may use or come in contact with them.

When buying items through consignment or receiving them as a hand-me-downs, it is very important to make sure that the items will be safe to use by everyone in the family.  Items could be recalled by a manufacturer for a number of safety issues or product defects. Unfortunately, these defects are often discovered after the product has been purchased and used by many.

Each month Swap.com posts recalled children’s products for our readers. Commonly found recalls apply to food items, furniture, and electronic devices, all including those that babies and children may come in with. Information about recalls can be found on store and manufacturer websites and government websites such as http://www.recalls.gov/search.html
