No Recall Worries Here

June 22, 2009

Food recalls…not fun. As a consumer, they totally throw me for a loop: did I buy that product? What exactly were the dates? In the past, when in doubt I would throw it out.

With the recent recall of Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough – even though I haven’t baked a cookie in well over a month – I started thinking about that uneasy feeling you get when you’re not quite sure if your purchase was recalled.

Well, guess what? If you use, you do know if you purchased a recalled item…because tells you! How cool is that? They keep track of all of your purchases, so if you did purchase Nestle Toll House Cookie Dough recently, you would have received an email from alerting you that you should dispose of it.

So, even though this most recent recall didn’t affect my family directly, just knowing that food recalls don’t have to take up any of my (already-limited) brain space is a wonderful perk.
