My answer to that question was a couple of pages in so I thought I'd spin it in another direction and see what happened.
My answer - "This new law that gives them more power to ask or force companies to remove pharmaceuticals, vitamins, make up and other items is doing just what I thought it would. It's raising the cost of these items and it's given the government more power over these companies. I nor any of my family or friends that I know of have ever been affected by a drugstore item that was on a recall list for whatever reason. This recall also sounds to have a bit to much of a "just in case" situation. You do realize every drug, every vitamin and even every kind of make up you use COULD have some kind of flaw in the process of making or delivery? If there is a real substantiated danger to people it should be recalled but these possibly and just in case situations will serve to only raise costs and do damage to a companies reputation. I think it all stems from the government not wanting business to be "too big" and lucrative."
I think (and I see some of you have)that if you are worried when you see these big name company recalls that you should just stop using the drugs at all because the processes are the same, in fact some of these name brands are made by these same companies for these stores.
I think for the most part, this is all part of the governments wishes to control what businesses do, how much they make or how "big" they get as well as how we run our lives. They have now decided they need to change the composition of otc and prescription drugs with acetaminiphen in them because you use to much of it and as most know, it can affect the liver if misused. The old standards that have been made after studies are now subject to change on a whim(no real studies).
Thoughts on the whole situation?

We typically only use meds. if someone has a high fever since my one Son has seizures we have to watch temps. Otherwise I believe in building up your immune system. Yes I vac. but that is it. No flu shots no drugs (except seizure med), no aspirin. Nothing. You know how often we get sick. 1-2 x a year. Maybe. Never had the flu. None of us.
