Attorney General Announces Recall Notifications Are Now
Just a Click Away

BALTIMORE, MD (October 15, 2007) – Toys tainted with lead, ground beef contaminated with e-coli, toasters that could pose a fire hazard. As the number of product recalls seem to increase on a daily basis, the task of keeping up with them can be tricky for consumers.

To eliminate much of the frustration in trying to track down the most up-to-date information, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler today announced an easily accessible link from the Office of the Attorney General’s website that directs consumers to all the federal websites that post the latest information on product recalls. The new link can be found at http://www.oag.state.md.us and leads directly to the Product Recall Clearinghouse website.

“Maryland consumers and their families should not be in the dark on items that have the potential to cause great harm, whether it be lipstick or baby food,” said Attorney General Gansler. “I am pleased to announce this new website feature that will make it easier for consumers to protect themselves from faulty products.”

The product recall website will be updated weekly or as needed depending on the number of recalls issued. Consumers with questions or concerns about recalled products may call the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Hotline at 410-528-8662 or toll free at
1-888-743-0023, or by visiting the Consumer Protection Division’s website at http://www.oag.state.md.us/Consumer/index.htm.
