I know that recalls have been a thing but lately it feels like so many foods and now store brand infant Tylenol is being recalled for too much medicine in 1 dose. Before that it was romaine lettuce and hamburger and that is in just a few week span. Why do you think there are so many recalls lately?

The food recalls have a lot to do with the centralizing of food production. When you process meat from thousands of animals at one plant, or produce from many different farms, the chance for cross contamination is multiplied. Any one item that has the contamination is co-mingled with all the rest. And the equipment used can further spread the bacteria.
I haven't followed the Tylenol story.

It's actually the ibuprofen being recalled, not acetaminophen which is different.

I don't know why things are being recalled, but I do know I've never heard of a Snickers being recalled, which is precisely why you should ignore the lettuce and eat candy instead lol.

You are pretty sharp. I enjoy your comments. So we have a Tylenol recall? I don't take them, but I didn't hear this one.

Someone mentioned his safety deregulation's that he rolled back when he came into office years ago as a possible reason.

If it were up to him the conditions of meat packing plants that Sinclair wrote about in the Jungle would still be in effect.

Hey I would rather have recalls instead of the cyanide in the Tylenol bottles we had years ago.
