If you’re concerned about product safety, the Whystle App is a fantastic resource for new parents. And seasoned parents too, for that matter. Just download the iOS App (Android coming soon!) and you can track the brands you use — from children to pets, food, medicine and household items — and even get automatic alerts should the products you own be recalled.
Sometimes companies wait to issue safety information or don’t provide the whole story. Whystle makes sure you get all the facts from orgs like the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the FDA, the CDC and more.
It’s not that every recall is a dire situation — sometimes you just need a new part or to make a small adjustment to keep something safe. But there may also be an emergency baby product recall, an allergy alert about a product in your fridge, or an urgent choking hazard warning about a baby toy, and it’s essential to take care of it as soon as possible, whether you need to toss it, or return for a replacement or refund.
Whystle makes all of it so easy.
Download Whystle today. It’s like having a safety expert right in your pocket.
