Consumers have a tendency to tune out recalls. The result is a lot of unnecessary injuries and deaths.

Particularly if you have children, check to be sure they're not sleeping in a dangerous crib or playing with a toy recalled because other children have been seriously hurt.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission makes it easy to keep track of recalls on its interactive site. You can even subscribe to get emails when a product is recalled.

To get the ball rolling, check out this list of 10 recalled products you might have in your home published on Time.com.

What you'll find are products blamed in deaths, mutilations and fires.
