Hearing about a product recall can be scary, but not knowing about one can be even scarier. Below are some ways that apps can help you keep on top of recalls so you can stay safe.
It seems like every day there is a new alert about a discovery for a product or food that can make you sick or cause damage. From appliance recalls to recalls of baby products, meat, pet food, and other items, we're always on edge because we don't know if the item that we have in our house or garage could suddenly stop working or worse, or the food we've trusted for years could make us, our family, or our pet sick. That's why it's a good idea to download apps like Fox News or another one of the breaking news apps to be alerted when recalls are announced.
Hearing about a recall is bad enough, but perhaps one of the scariest recalls you can hear about is an auto recall. The last thing you want is to be driving down the road alone or with your family only to have your brakes or steering go out on you without warning. Even though this can't be completely avoided, having an app like myCARFAX on your phone can tell you about recalls on your vehicle so you can have all the up to date information right there at your fingertips. This will help ensure that you can have your car cared for and keep your family safe.
Finally, another popular way that information gets out about product recall alerts will get out is through email. So, whether you use a web-based email like Yahoo or you use one through your ISP, it's a good idea to download an app to get your email and subscribe to lists and emergency alerts. This way you have all of your bases covered on getting alerts in case you miss one.
