I’ve downloaded my Recalls Plus App and have been using it for a little while now. I’ll tell you a secret. I’m addicted to reading recalls! I always have been and I believe it has saved me from some heartaches I might have had if I didn’t find out when I did. I have had toys recalled for lead and medicines recalled for God know what in my life! I’m always on the lookout. So, when I had this opportunity to download and write a review for SheSpeaks and Recalls Plus I was so on it!

My Thoughts: Let me start with my favorite feature and that would be the food with undeclared allergens. May parents face the horror of having a child with a food allergy. The worst part is when something goes horribly wrong and you don’t know why. I love the idea and being able to plug in what allergens I’m on the lookout for and receiving alerts on products with undeclared allergens. Just in the past 4 days a few products were discovered that contained undeclared walnuts and soy protein. Imagine if your child got a hold of those products. I find this part of the app particularly amazing and helpful. It also offers several features from plugging in your child’s age group and also registering products you already own in case they are recalled. It’s easy to use and even easier to share with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. As a parent I have to say this app is a must have for safety! It is such an easy way to stay ahead of the game.
