What should you do if you have a recalled product?

If you think you have a recalled product, contact the manufacturer immediately - it may be unsafe to keep using it. Some manufacturers also have online forms to help you check if you own a recalled product.

If a manufacturer recalls a product, it has a duty to take action to try and ensure the affected products are safe. This is often done by repairing the problem.

However, smaller items may just be recalled and the owner refunded the original purchase price.
