When Ford vehicles have an airbag problem or Kraft recalls millions of boxes of macaroni, it’s headline-worthy news. But what about the many other products you use every day?

Thankfully, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, keeps tabs on these items.

The CPSC is an independent federal regulatory agency tasked with protecting the public against risk of injury or death posed by consumer products. Among its important duties is to obtain product recalls and arrange for a repair, replacement or refund for the recalled products, according to CPSC.gov.

Under the Consumer Product Safety Act, all manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers are required to report any potentially hazardous products to the federal government within 24 hours of discovery.

The CPSC collects that information and logs these recalls at CPSC.gov/recalls. There you can scroll through the latest recalls or use the search bar to find a particular product.

To make it even easier, we’ve compiled the 11 products recalled during the month of January 2021, including a cellphone charger and bedroom furniture. Check the list below to see if you own or use any of these items. You may be entitled to a refund, replacement or repair.
