Do you notice this?

I'm getting really frustrated lately with all the recalls. Granted they don't always concern me but still.....

Drop side and Fixed side Cribs, Spagetti-Os, Kellogg's Cereal and oh-the-not-so-long-ago Shrek Glasses from McDonalds.

It really is starting to anger me because it seems like it has to do with mainly children's items/food products.

What's going on with everything? Is it just mass hysteria or do you ladies notice the increase in the recalls lately?

I notice it too! 

And it pisses me off because it's like.....aren't these items being checked BEFORE they go out on the shelves? Why aren't they being tested before they go out for the public to buy???

It's been nice to be a "natural-ish" mama because so far, it has never been an issue.

(No toys from China/plastic toys, no plastic cups, no fast food anything at all, no cribs, etc.)

yeah we thought we would have the same crib for all of kids but no ours is recalled, and now all of them are way expensive, its annoying.  I would co-sleep but we dh and I aren't good for that we move too much.  So we have to bite the bullet.

I know they haven't been recalled (yet) but I will never again buy Capri Sun drinks.
