A New Way To Get Information On Recalled Products

It's like we've been bombarded lately. "There's so many," said one shopper.  So many recalls....in such little time. Everything from pet food to peanut butter has been recalled recently.  Just this month, we've heard of recalls on everything from batteries, to toothpaste, to almost 10 million Mattel toys.  Now, Castleberry's recently had to pull some products from the shelves, and it seems like this is becoming routine in many stores.

We asked shoppers how they hear about these recalls. "You guys are good enough to get it on and out to the public so we'll know," said one shopper. The government wants you to have another option...the Internet with such sites ast http://www.recalls.gov.  It shows recent recalls for a variety of items - like food, medicine, even cars.  If you don't quite understand something on here, you can contact different government agencies - all from the website.

It's an added option for some shoppers who just want to keep up with it all.  "I think its very good that we do have safeguards, we do have ways to detect that their is something wrong," said another shopper.  Now you have  some extra knowledge before you head to the checkout isle of your favorite grocery store.
