In a constant effort to share information on subjects that are relevant to the health of the population, here are some safety tips on products that are bought or sold at garage sales.

But did you know that objects that are bought or sold at garage sales must comply with Canada Consumer Product Safety Actregulations?
What are the instructions to follow to make sure a product is really safe?
Do you know where to consult the Consumer Product Recall List?
