Recalls: Tablets, Flourescent Lights, Children's Toys and a Few More


Product Recalls: Tablets, Flourescent Lights, Children's Toys
Below are a few more product recalls of computer tablets, fluorescent lighting, and a few products designed for children that you should be aware of.

Remember,  most products on a recall should stop being used immediately and then contact the distributor for directions on what to do. Even if it seems fine, well, it seemed fine for whoever the item malfunctioned on too, until it didn't. I myself don't like being part of the statistics.
