I signed up  for the latest recalls to be emailed to me.  I seem to be getting at least one a week!!  I think that's crazy.  Anyways, I'll start posting the recalls on this post for everyone to see. 

And don't forget.  With the holidays right around the corner, make sure to keep all your receipts/gift receipts in case, God forbid, something you purchase or receive is recalled.  

**UPDATE 11/8**
This is a link to a segment from my local news about the Aqua Dots recall.  This is scary stuff Moms.  I'm sure your local news covered this as well, but in case you missed it, here's my local news.

I will not be buying any toys made in China this holiday season!  There has been recall after recall dealing with lead-based paint and I worry about anything that is imported from China. 

Here is a great link that will take you to over 75 companies that sell toys MADE IN THE U.S.A.
