WASHINGTON (AP) -- The nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports magazine has launched a new Web site to keep people in the know about recalls and hazardous products.

A Consumers Union official says he hopes the site provides American families with timely information to help keep their homes and children safe.

The site provides news on the latest recalls from a variety of government agencies, including the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Food and Drug Administration. It includes updates on what the federal government and Congress are doing to ensure the safety of the food supply, toys and other products.

The site also provides an electronic form letter consumers can send to lawmakers advocating stronger legislation.
