Moms.Charlotte.com, in alliance with CharlotteObserver.com, recently posted a list of items that have been recalled because they pose a danger or threat of injury to the public. The list mostly focused on items used by children such as clothing, toys, and cribs, but also includes adult clothes, household items, cleaning supplies, and food. Suppliers on the list included well-known companies such as Hoover, Fisher-Price, Disney, and Nestle. A comprehensive list can be found on Moms.Charlotte.com.
The recall list brings attention to items that are sold at discount stores, dollar stores, flea markets and thrift stores. The U.S. Consumer Safety Commission specifically warned consumers that certain items produced by Meijer, Inc. were recalled but later resold at discount stores, dollar stores, flea markets, and thrift stores. The U.S. Consumer Safety Commission advises it is illegal to resale these items that have been recalled. However, this practice clearly occurs. Thus, consumers must be aware of this practice and protect themselves.
