Buyers Beware

June 27, 2004

Albany-- The Department of Consumer Product Safety is warning you to be careful of what you pick up at garage sales.

The department says while retailers normally pull recalled items off of the shelves, many defective or potentially dangerous products can turn up at thrift stores, consignment stores and yard sales.

People can find out if a product has been recalled by visiting the Consumer Product  Safety Commission's web site or Kids In Danger.
