Recall of the Week: New Mobile App tracks recalls
While I didn’t start off wanting to have a recall of the week, there has been a recall on some product or other over the past few months.
Having trouble keeping track?
Now, the FDA has teamed up with the Department of Agriculture, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to create a mobile app that lets users track product recalls.
Find the app on the US government website. You get a press release and a picture of the tainted product. Right now, the app is limited to Android users, but they are developing one for iPhone and Blackberry smartphones.
