Every week I will post a list of recalls and important warnings that our community needs to know about. The list will provide a link for additional information about each recall/warning. I highly recommend that you review the list to make sure that you or a family member are not taking/using the effected product.
The list will mainly include products/drugs effecting our children and our families.
Give me a call or message me If you have any questions about any of the products listed. No charge for the call!
