At Trantolo & Trantolo, we believe in this simple philosophy: people are more important than profit! When a company releases a product that is defective or otherwise dangerous to the public, they are more concerned about profit. Oftentimes, children are the victims of most accidents related to these products. We think that manufacturers need to be held accountable for their actions. To avoid a product liability lawsuit, the following government resources can help protect you and your family from a hazardous situation.

United States Consumer Product Safety Commission

CPSC professionals help protect the public from the risks of dangerous products. When property is damaged and consumers are injured or die by a defective product, the CPSC informs the public of recalls and developing lawsuits. In addition to this helpful information, businesses and consumers can receive safety education about carbon monoxide, cribs, fires, pools, the risk of in-home drowning or poisoning and more. Review the latest recalls.

USA.gov Shopping and Consumer Issues

USA.gov is a division of the U.S. General Services Administration’s Technology Transformation Service. The mission of the website is to provide timely government and safety information to the public. In addition to information about recalled products, this includes shopping and consumer issues in banking, cars, housing, insurance and more. You can explore the different areas of USA.gov for the latest information.


Recalls.gov is a government website where consumers can find the latest products to be taken off the market. The information is collected from other government agencies, like the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, who test appliances, furniture, toys and more for public use. Find out if a product you own has been recalled.
