I was going to blog about the inane recall a while ago with the Gerber Oatmeal that, gee, clumps if you don’t stir it, but I’m a little slow on the draw and lots of other bloggers beat me to it.
Recalls should be saved for items, like, hmmm, let’s see… oh, yes:
Millions of Chinese-made toys for children have been pulled from shelves in North America and Australia after scientists found they contain a chemical that converts into a powerful date rape drug when ingested. Two children in the U.S. and three in Australia were hospitalized after swallowing the beads.
Seriously, sometimes I just want to scrap it all and just live without. This was supposed to be the “hot toy” this season. And while I question the wisdom of allowing toddlers anywhere near any sort of beads, obviously you don’t want any craft product or toy marketed to children TO CONTAIN CHEMICALS THAT CAUSE COMAS WHEN INGESTED.
I am wondering if Rome really did fall because of lead pipes.
Taking a nap now. Wake me up when its safe again.
