For those who are app fanatics, health caution, and tech gurus here is a perfect combination for you. The FDA has a recall Gov. App for android devices. This means that anytime there is a food or drug recall your App will notify you.
The following information below was provided from the FDA.gov website:
Note: To install the Recalls.gov App on an Android device outside of Android’s App Market, you will need to enable Unknown Sources. On your Android phone, go to Settings > Application Settings and check the Unknown Sources checkbox. After the Recalls.gov App is downloaded and installed, you may uncheck the Unknown Sources checkbox.
When you’re buying and using products, safety comes first. And now, with this product recalls application, you have vital safety information available whenever and wherever you need it — right on your mobile phone.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Food and Drug Administration, and Department of Agriculture monitor the safety of thousands of products and issue hundreds of recall announcements each year of millions of products.
Now, those recalls are right at your fingertips, thanks to the new RECALLS.GOV mobile application. Whether you’re at your child’s day care center or a yard sale, whether you’re at a store or at home, you can now type a product’s name into your phone and learn immediately whether that product has been recalled because of a safety concern. You can also see photos of recalled products and learn what to do with recalled products in your homes.
Stay informed, stay safe, check for product recalls.
