If you don't know how to do this, or don't understand how to use the CPSC web site to do searches on recalls and safety concerns, download this PowerPoint file and follow its instructions. This PowerPoint presentation is part of my Interactive Report System that the buyer, buyer's agent, and seller/seller's agent get.
