Submission + - Free Product Recall Information By E-mail

JeremyDuffy writes: "The Consumer Product Safety Commission has begun a service that will notify consumers by e-mail of any product safety recalls.

For example, Selina Patten, of Manassas, Va., had a close call when the recalled plastic nail from a Playskool toy tool bench became lodged in the throat of her 3-year-old daughter. She was able to remove the nail before serious injury occurred. She later discovered the product had been recalled after the death of two toddlers, though she did not hear about it.
Note: This requires no registration of any kind! You do not have to tell them what products you have and the only personal information (if you can call it that) that they ask for is an e-mail address. There's also very little chance of them spamming you since they are a government agency. This is a good thing from our government for a change."
