Between birthdays, holidays and everydays, us moms are constantly sifting through piles of products, gadgets and gear for our kids. But sometimes it’s hard to take stock of what we bring in and every day recalls on products that touch our children’s lives come out. But no longer must we wait for the news to push out messages of a product’s recall, now we can proactively monitor product recalls with, a just-launched app for iPhone and iPod touch, Recalls Plus, which enables busy parents with young children to proactively protect their children from dangerous products, allowing them to quickly take action to prevent a potential threat.
Not only do I love it, but this app was also featured on Apple’s “What’s Hot” list within the first days of launching and can now be found in the “Great Free Apps” section. It’s simple to use, easy to navigate, and really helps calm my nerves that I’m doing all I can to monitor the products that touch my kids’ lives.
Features of the Recalls Plus App include:
- Proactively delivers timely recall alerts for the items on your Personal Watch List (a personalized list of the brands and products that you wish to monitor)
- Hand curates every product and food recall directly from government agencies (CPSC, NHTSA, FDA, USDA) for relevance to children and consolidates them in one place
- Provides a simple, easy-to-use solution to track recall information and instantly share it with family and friends
Because sorting through the large volume of typical recalls, many with low personal relevance, can be overwhelming, this app gives parents like me peace of mind that I’m not missing any relevant recalls. The Recalls Plus App is available for FREE from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/recalls-plus/id499200328. It’s also available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/recallsplus.
