Having a baby is an amazing experience that comes with cuddles, memories and a ton of baby stuff! There are strollers, cribs, car seats, playards, playmats, entertainers, carriers and the list goes on and on. It seems like from the time you see those two pink lines on the pregnancy stick, your house starts to become overrun with everything baby. How did all that baby gear get into your house?
You did your research. You combed the internet to find out what the best products are for your baby. You sat for hours glued to the Baby Gizmo YouTube channel watching video after video trying to choose your perfect stroller. You asked your friends. You asked your neighbors. You grilled random strangers in Target about their carriers. And you’d like to think you made the safest choices for your little bundle of joy, but how do you know when that product stops being the safest because of a defect or recall?
How do you know when others have filed complaints? There can be hundreds of complaints made to government agencies about child-specific products before a recall is issued. During this period, children can continue to be injured or killed by these unsafe products. You wouldn’t want your child to continue using a potentially dangerous product, right?
A major recall earlier this year had 144 consumer complaints before being recalled. Well, if you are a member of Empowered SAFETY you’d be alerted to these complaints.
There can be long delays between when major complaints are made about a product and an official recall. But how do you know when people are filing them?! Sure, you could pour over every news report, legal filing, press release, blog post and federal and state agency websites to make sure your products haven’t been recalled, but not only will you not have time for this, you probably won’t see the complaints before the recall even happens.
So how do you know? The answer is you probably don’t.
A new online service is doing the work for you! Empowered SAFETY is the only service to alert consumers of these complaints prior to a recall being issued. They are monitoring all those places that you don’t have time for or don’t know where to look.
They have a team of research staff who review all consumer complaints and match each one to the over 500,000 child-specific products in their database; many of which have not, or may never be, officially recalled.
This is stuff YOU need to know about!
If you sign up at EmpoweredSafety.com, not only will you receive alerts on product safety, but their research team collects other critical information and delivers it directly to you on things like food safety such a food recalls in the area where YOUR family lives. Major spinach recall in your area and you are a huge green smoothie gal? You don’t want to wait until Facebook starts trending it before you know, right?!
Plus, they will show you home safety alerts such as articles and news specific to your children’s ages. And Health and Wellness news such as issues in your area or specific to you children’s ages.
So, how do they know what products YOU have? Well, when you sign up, it’s easy to match your products with the half-million child products in Empowered SAFETY’s database, and then sit back and let the email notifications on your products roll in, should complaints be made against them.
Here is what my weekly update looks like when there are no major alerts that I need to be aware of on my products.
I hope you don’t get any email notifications about major complaints on your products, so that you can feel confident that the products your babies and kids are using are a-okay, but things happen and you should know about them if they do.
Another great feature is that you can also use the site to research consumer complaints for a child-specific product before you purchase (premium members can do this!). That’s really handy when you are worried that you want the safest high chair or a car seat that has few complaints.
There is a fee for the Empowered Safety service (less than 50 cents a day) but it’s your child’s safety. You probably want to know when the products in your house or the food in your fridge are recalled or complained about or other safety issues, so I encourage you to check out Empowered Safety.
