Part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, FSIS is responsible for ensuring the safety of the nation’s commercial supply of meat, poultry, and egg products and that these products are correctly labeled and packaged. Their site lists current recalls on food products and they maintain a recall archive of past recall announcements.

Under the Department of Transportation, NHTSA is responsible for setting and enforcing safety performance standards for motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment. NHTSA investigates safety defects in motor vehicles, and promotes the use of safety belts, child safety seats, and airbags.
