Our policy is to not sell recalled or unsafe items however; it is the responsibility of our consignors to make sure that all of their items have not been recalled. We are all parents and the safety and security of our children is our number one priority. Please check ALL items for recalls, including toys and bikes. Items can be checked for recalls at www.cpsc.gov (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission). Please remember YOU are the re-seller, not ThriftMouse. We are just facilitating the sale. As a ThriftMouse consignor, you will sign a Consignor’s Agreement that specifically states you have checked the recall list and are not bringing any recalled items. Thank you in advance for your assistance with this.
