identifying recalled products
Identifying Recalled Products
  • Background
    • Attachments to various Realtor Association standard purchase agreements recommends checking products for any potential recalls
  • Issue
    • Identifying products through Consumer Products Safety Commission is difficult to impossible. (No way to rule out entirely, difficult to search an entire house full of appliances in a reasonable amount of time)
  • Solution
    • RecallChek
contract recommendation
Contract Recommendation
  • In California, Statewide Buyers & Sellers Advisory (SBSA ¶ 32) says
    • Government & manufacturers may issue or change recall notices or warnings at any time
    • There is NO single, all-inclusive source of information on product recalls, defective products, or class actions
    • Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) maintains a website (www.CPSC.gov)
    • Buyer is referred to website during the inspection contingency period (but rarely if ever visits)
    • Similar standards are in place or under consideration in most states
