Product recalls: a website to find all dangerous products

The list of all product recalls will be available this Thursday on the Rappel conso site, launched by the government.

Pizzas, chocolates, cheeses, ice cubes. All product recalls will now be reported through a single portal from April 1, 2021. It is no longer necessary to hunt for information on websites and in the media to find out if a product is unsafe or defective. An informed consumer is worth two.

A communication problem

Consumer products (food, household, childcare, etc.) that present risks to the health or safety of consumers may be recalled. If the recall is made before the product goes on sale, it will never arrive in supermarkets. But if, unfortunately, a product is recalled after it goes on sale, shoppers are forced to return the product to the store for destruction.

Retailers behind product recalls are required to notify governments and consumers through their websites, social media and media.

Listeria

Unfortunately, the information often slips through the cracks, leaving many users in the dark.

A website accessible to all

To combat this phenomenon and better inform consumers, the Directorate General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Prevention (DGCCRF) has set up a portal listing all product recalls reported in France. This site, rappel.conso.gouv.fr, free and available since Thursday April 1, 2021, is intended to be the single site for alerts on dangerous products.

Honey

On this portal, product recalls will be classified under different themes (food, hygiene-beauty, habitat-home, household appliances-tools, etc.) with a photo of the product, the brand, the risk involved and possibly the batch number and /or the geographical area concerned. Medicines, on the other hand, will be absent from this list. Medicines and medical devices will continue to be declared to the National Medicines Safety Agency (ANSM) under existing procedures, specifies the Ministry of the Economy.

All this information will be detailed by the professional himself, who will have the obligation to declare all his recalls on this site by filling in a product sheet. Everything therefore rests on the shoulders of companies, which we hope will not take long to react.
