The fact that almost not a day goes by and another recall is reported is worrisome at least to me especially when you take into consideration that a big chunk of these recalled items are food. How on Earth are these products making it through the inspection process and onto store shelves and freezers? It would be fascinating to get a peek behind the curtain to see how that whole process works. Wouldn't you agree?
