Recalls and Product Safety News

Lowe's values your safety and satisfaction. We make sure to provide you with up-to-date information on any recalls or product safety news as it comes available.

Safety and Satisfaction

At Lowe's your safety and satisfaction are our first priorities. So we will post product recalls from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). For more information, you may also visit the CPSC Web site at www.cpsc.gov. As it relates to Lowe's, the information provided here is based on press releases that involve product sold through Lowe's stores or on Lowes.com. The information includes the products involved and the steps to take if you have one of the recalled items. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Also, the Web site www.recalls.gov links visitors to the home pages of government regulatory agencies responsible for product recalls. In addition to finding details about recalled products, visitors will gain additional safety information and may sign up for e-mail alerts on recalled products, as they become available.

Products Safety Advisories Issued by the CPSC

CPSC Warns of Carbon Monoxide Hazards When Using Portable Generators - 1/12/05.

Portable generators are useful when temporary or remote electric power is needed, but they also can be hazardous. The primary hazards to avoid when using a generator are carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning from the toxic engine exhaust, electric shock or electrocution, and fire. Never use a generator in enclosed or partially-enclosed spaces. Generators can produce high levels of CO very quickly. When you use a portable generator, remember that you cannot smell or see CO. Even if you can't smell exhaust fumes, you may still be exposed to CO. For more information, please click on the link: www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/portgen.html

CPSC Warns of "Hidden Hazard" to Young Children - Old Window Coverings Pose Strangulation Risk - 10/05.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Window Covering Safety Council, and independent retailers have joined forces to urge consumers to repair or replace window coverings purchased before 2001.

Consumers possessing window coverings purchased before 2001 can obtain a free repair kit from the Window Covering Safety Council's Website at www.windowcoverings.org, or call (800) 504-4636. For more information, please click on the link: www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml06/06014.html
