The US Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), aware that one of the greatest
hazards posed by defective products is in the
resale market, (when items are sold in resale shops,
on-line auctions and garage sales) has launched
several new public awareness programs. The CPSC
has partnered with major on-line auction houses eBay
and Amazon.com a program called "Recall Double
Check" where sellers and buyers are encouraged to
check for recall on items they are buying and
selling. Auction sites are providing links to
the informational site of the CPSC. Also on the
on-line front, the CPSC has begun monitoring internet
sites looking for sales of recalled, illegal or
dangerous products. They've called this new
program Operation SOS (Safe On-line Shopping) which
started as a pilot program in December, 1999.
The CPSC has also partnered with the
US Postal Service to post recall notices in its 33,000
post offices nationwide. They hope that will
function as sort of a "Dangerous Products Most
Wanted List." This program shifts the focus
from the stores to the real danger, getting dangerous
products out of homes. The CPSC and USPS are
hoping by giving 7 million postal customers each day
exposure to recall notices, they can help to prevent
unnecessary accidents and injuries.
