How Do I Know If a Product I Bought Is Part of a Walmart Recall?
Walmart sells millions of items in a huge number of departments. With an inventory that large, it’s inevitable that something is going to be recalled at some point. Walmart, like other retailers, does its best to protect the safety of customers. This means recalling products that are deemed dangerous by a government agency or the manufacturer of the product.
Walmart lists current product recalls on its website along with the date and reason for the recall. Walmart recalls are divided into three distinct categories:
- Food – Includes any fresh, frozen, or prepared food, meat, or beverage item produced by any manufacturer.
- Pharmacy – When the FDA or other federal organization recalls a drug or medical device, Walmart does as well.
- Over-the-Counter Meds – Cold medicines, pain medication, and other OTC products may be recalled.
- Products – From ankle weights to pet food to zebra print pillowcases any product Walmart carries may be recalled.
Who is Eligible for a Walmart Product Recall?
Like most retailers, Walmart has certain rules regarding product recalls. Generally, you won’t be able to get a refund. However, you may be able to get a product replacement or repair for a recalled Walmart product. In order to participate, you’ll need to produce certain key pieces of information including a receipt for the product. In some cases, you may need to bring the product to the store to exchange it.
Do I Immediately Get a Recall if I Report Walmart Products?
You may not realize this, but product recalls are triggered reports from consumers and consumer product watchdog groups. When a potentially dangerous product is reported, the manufacturers, distributors, and retailers associated with its sale must come together to voluntarily recall the item, or a government agency may issue a recall based on reports.
- Reporting a Walmart product does not guarantee that there will be a complete recall.
- Regulatory bodies and agencies review the evidence to determine if a product should be recalled.
- Product recall requests must be comprehensive and contain compelling evidence for a recall.
