Unsafe Products and Recalls

EUROPA - Gateway to the European Union

Toys and child care articles such as strollers, high chairs, and clothing, make up a large number of dangerous product notifications and recalls.

To prevent unsafe products from being sold, the European Commission provides a weekly report of dangerous product notifications through their "RAPEX" system, the EU rapid alert system for all dangerous consumer products.

To read the weekly RAPEX report, please visit the Europa website at the link below. If you wish to report an unsafe product, please contact the national contact point in your country, also listed on their site.

If you would like information about safety standards for childcare products, and which childcare products are currently undergoing new standards development, please visit our partner ANEC-BEUC's website at the link below.
