Sorry to have to bring these recalls to your attention, Sisters and Brothers but I want you all to stay safe if you are in the USA.  I get these from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's weekly summaries.  Keep your eyes and ears alert for recalls during the week so you have the most up to date information.
