I take items being recalled pretty lightly. At least, for a lot of things I do. I feel like, now-a-days, everything is being recalled and nine times out of ten it’s taken off the market because of human error. A baby carrier is recalled because a baby was injured in it – because the parent was using it incorrectly. A swing was recalled because a baby fell out of it- because the parent didn’t buckle the kid in.
I mean, DUH.
Of course, there are plenty of items that are recalled and should be taken off the market to keep people safe and healthy. Obviously safety comest first, but I just feel like a lot of things are recalled for silly reasons. I think some things get a bad rep, when really, it’s the person using it who maybe forgot to read the directions.
I have a lot of products that have recently been recalled. I am still using all of them.
I’m sure I have many other things too!
Do you agree with me that the amount of recalled items seems ridiculous? I guess my thought is, something bad can happen to anyone from anything. I could say I fell off the couch and broke my arm- should the couch be recalled then too? Am I the only one that feels this way?
Specifically, I wanted to hear what you thought about Hyland’s Teething tablets being recalled. I’ve heard a lot of different points of views about this; about why they were recalled in the first place, the fact that it was (apparently) for a bad reason, therefore they are still fine to use and of course some people who don’t touch them now regardless.
Do you still use Hyland’s Teething Tablets?
I know they aren’t sold in stores anymore. I have about half a bottle left and I’m trying to decide if I want to use them for Joshua. I know they worked great with Lucas so I was totally bummed when I heard they were recalled.
What do you think about all this?
