Description

Our ABC News investigation, “Recall Roulette,” found that most recalled products are not turned in or fixed, remaining in homes or listed for sale. Under current federal law, there is no minimum effort that manufacturers have to make, or money they have to spend, to get the word out about the safety recalls. It is illegal to sell a recalled product, but in a joint investigation with 17 ABC News affiliates across the country, reporters found a wide range of recalled products easily available for resale. And in his first major interview, the new head of the Consumer Product Safety Commission called out Craigslist for not doing enough to thwart recalled products from being posted on the site, calling it “morally irresponsible.”
