Too Many Product Recalls Threaten Consumer Health

Sometimes it seems there is a new product recall every day. In truth, the problem of defective and dangerous products is much worse than that. In 2011, there were 2,363 recalls, roughly 6.5 every day. The recalls affect all types of consumer goods from drugs and medical devices to food, toys, and personal products. The recalls were so numerous that there is a new concern that consumers will become fatigued and start ignoring recalls that could seriously affect their wellbeing.

Teen Driving Deaths and the Law

It is a widely known fact that teens suffer the highest rates of car accidents and car accident deaths of any age group. It is no surprise that the least experienced drivers would get into auto accidents at an elevated rate. What is surprising is the widely varying approaches taken by different states in introducing new drivers onto the road. While fewer and fewer teens are choosing to get licenses, particularly in urban areas, teens as young as 14 can be legally on the roads in South Dakota and Iowa. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is now recommending what it calls "best practices" for states in getting new drivers up to speed on safe driving.
