    With all of these recall of unsafe products, I want to know when congress and the administration will act these dangerous imports. First jobs were out sourced to foreign manufactures, now our health is at stake. Greed has over come our nation, because this is all about money and the majority populus here in the USA is not earning it. Stuff should never be recalled. Products should be checked before allowed on market shelves
