Recalls

Recalls happen for a number of reasons, but essentially, a recalled product has been deemed no longer safe. It is important as a parent or caregiver to stay on top of recent recalls so that you can ensure you are using products that meet the highest safety standards. This especially goes for secondhand product purchases.
