Recall Report Finds Companies Can Do More To Alert Parents

Recall Report Finds Companies Can Do More To Alert Parents

A new report says Facebook and Twitter have the potential to save lives.

More children's clothing and toys are being recalled, and parents are not responding.

The Kids in Danger report says the number of children's recalls rose 18 percent in 2013.  The number of recall-related deaths rose 22 percent.

What really has researchers concerned is that just ten percent of the children's products recalled in 2012 were fixed, replaced or returned.  The report says companies need to do more to spread the word.

For instance, 63 recalls could have been sent out through social media, but just nine were posted on Facebook and companies sent out just eight Tweets.

In many cases, those posts didn't include important information.
