Love the app

I love this app because it’s so easy to use. Another thing about this app. It will keep me informed about products that haven’t been taken off the shelves. This way I can show the manager or supervisor about the problem and get things taken care of immediately. I wish the government would keep there noses out of this app. Do to the fact when the government alerts me to a problem it’s usually several days later. At my age it’s hard to read the governments small print when they send out an email notice. This app sends out a notice right away the same day of when it’s supposed to be pulled out off shelves or freezers.

This app is fascinating

I just got the app and have been looking at recalls! Crazy stuff that I now want to know. Earlier this year there was an outbreak of listeria in cheese! The cheese was in a lot of products, mostly cotija cheese. There are a lot of recalls for food with foreign objects; wood, plastic, stones!, hairnet!!!!!!, shrink wrap!! And parchment paper. There was something labeled unfit for human consumption, goat milk products for baby that is unsafe because it doesn’t have enough nutrition to keep your baby healthy, toxic oleander seeds that people were selling as health food?!!!! And cinnamon with lead and cadmium. Lots of salmonella meat. Makes you want to just stop eating!!!
Thanks for this app. I’ll definitely be checking it often.

Wow! Where has this been all my life

I was so sick of the emails, but still wanted a way to see alerts on food recalls. I read about the FoodKeeper app, but it’s kind of like an email and takes too long to determine each individual alert. This app, in the other hand, shows the same data, but gives you the brief summary you are looking for, an actual photo of the product, and the a symbol associated with the recall reasoning.

The only downside is that it doesn’t show anything that is under investigation/products that haven’t been forced to recall just yet.
