Lists of recalled refrigerators are available directly from the manufacturer's website or from the U.S. government-administered website Recalls.gov. The recall list for consumer products is also available from the website of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission at CPSC.gov.
Individual corporations release recall announcements and host information on the affected product and model number. They also provide instructions on returning the appliance or requesting the repairs necessary to fix the problem. Manufacturers are required by law to attempt to notify all individuals who purchased the affected product. Companies may choose to voluntarily recall a product, or the government may announce a forced recall.
