We have been very blessed this year and the boys have a lot of STUFF. Toys, food, candy, ride-ons, carseats, etc, etc….there is just no way I can stay up to date on all of the recalls that happen daily by checking out manufacturers’ websites and subscribing to email lists. Most of the time, I notice a recall weeks or even months after it happens and that is frustrating. Unless it’s a MAJOR recall that affects the health of a lot of people, there is a delay in when I actually hear about it and can take action by removing the toy or tossing the food product.
We recently found out that the Captain is allergic to pecans and walnuts. A lot of things we eat contain these nuts, so it’s helpful to know if a product contains them. A lot of times products aren’t properly labeled and need to be recalled because they contain allergens that weren’t known to begin with. I LOVED hearing about Recalls Plus because it’s a simple app that immediately alerts you to any and all recalls. You can specify what recalls you want to know about. Of course, we want to be notified of recalls pertaining to products containing tree nuts, so that’s already on my “Watch List.”
You can also add ages of children, companies, and more to your list. So, if you’re only buying Graco products, you won’t be notified with every Britax recall there might be. I love this aspect of Recalls Plus!
