Consumer Product Recall Listing shows flat panel TVs, lawn mowers

Consumer products are often tested for compliance with federal and state safety standards and regulations. These efforts are taken in the interests of protecting the public and ensuring quality and consistency in the marketplace. Various federal and state agencies release their findings when a product fails their testing or reports are received alerting them to potential safety hazards.

Recall.org is a private 501(3)c non-profit organization dedicated to protecting public safety by public awareness of consumer product safety recalls by federal and state agencies.  It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

This report is for the week of Sept. 21 to Sept. 25, 2014.

Business Clarksville publishes these reports for the benefit of our readers and the general public.
