As a personal injury attorney, my thoughts are with those involved in this recall, and I hope that nobody is adversely affected. I highly advise looking to see if you have a product included in this recall and return it immediately so that you avoid any problems. I’m glad the company announced the recall so that any issues could hopefully be avoided.
