We hear about product recalls on food, drugs, animal health, medical devices, cosmetics and more on the news quite often – surely more often than we’d like. But did you know that there is a specific website where you can find out intricate details on product recalls?
One will also find on their site Major Product Recalls. These would be on products that need expanded coverage due to the impact they have on human health.
The FDA makes it super easy to stay up-to-date on the latest recalls by offering to email you when they come out. And if you have an Android phone you can utilize their Android Phone app.
