According to a December 22, 2008 ConsumerAffairs.com article, the large retail chain Target has recently started using an in-house recall notification system. Target and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are working together to make it easier for consumers to receive recall notices. Target has utilized its existing gift registry kiosks to supply interested customers with up to date recalled product information. The store has also posted signs informing guests of the new functionality of the kiosks.
Target will continue updating its website, Target.com, with all safety and recall information and will supply links to the CPSC website. In addition, Target will send e-mails to those consumers who purchased any recalled products on Target.com. Consumers can also sign up for e-mail updates on recalls directly from the CPSC.
