Keeping Track of Toy Recalls via RSS and E-Mail

Written by dad - 3 Comments

Are you worried about the recent toy recalls? Having trouble keeping up with what’s safe and what’s made of lead? Then look no further than the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s master list of toy recalls, which can be accessed here. The list is arranged chronologically, with the most recent recalls at the top.

And yes, I know what you’re thinking…

If only they offered an RSS feed.

Well… They don’t, but we do!

Simply add the following url to your favorite feedreader and you’re good to go:

Toy Recall RSS Feed: http://www.raising4boys.com/toyrecalls/

Alternatively, you can sign up to receive recall updates via e-mail.

Note that this feed only gives you the titles of the recalls, but the titles are pretty descriptive, so that should be more than enough to decide if you want to click through for more information.

Also note that, while the above url redirects to a FeedBurner feed that I’ve created, you should subscribe via the link listed above in case I have to make any changes to keep this feed alive in the future.

Finally, I thought I’d take this opportunity to plug our regular RSS feed, which provides you with the full text of everything we write. We also offer an e-mail version.

(Special thanks to The Consumerist for pointing out the CPSC list.)

  1. Now that Google owns FeedBurner, they’ve made the branding service free. You can create a DNS record that points a subdomain (feeds.raising4boys.com for example) to FeedBurner, so that if you did need to change it you still retain control, but you don’t have to rely upon your site being available for the link.
