Recalls happen all the time. In fact, on average, at least one product is recalled per every two days in the US. While that might sound like a lot, when you consider just how many consumer products there are, it’s a drop in the bucket.
Lawyers who specialize in recalls have a quick tip to all consumers. When you make purchases, you need to hang on to your receipts. Put them somewhere safe that you can remember them. Organize them by date, and keep track of when and where you go shopping. This can come in handy down the line.
For one thing, this allows you to track your spending and develop healthier spending habits. For another thing, if a product you purchase is recalled, you’ll have a record of the sale. Then, you can easily get reimbursed for the recalled product should you need to return it to the store you bought it from.
