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.
