Dive computers, garden swings stumble onto consumer products recall listing

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 non-profit organization dedicated to protecting public safety by raising public awareness of consumer product safety recalls by federal and state agencies. Recall.org provides these consumer products recall reports in the interest of consumer safety. Business Clarksville publishes these reports for the benefit of our readers and the general public.
