Last week’s poll asking what bank you preferred was another popular one. While not nearly as many people getting all up in a huff about their favorites as the radio station poll, there were plenty that agreed that TCF is the worst bank in Minnesota. Speaking of that, we just got our checks for the credit union in the mail today–a box which should last us at least 10 years being that no one uses checks anymore, thank god.
Anyway, this week’s poll stems from a recent recall of Tylenol products due to some sort of musty odor. I honestly didn’t think much of it, it’s not like I ran to my medicine cabinet and looked through all the bottles to see if the lot numbers matched. But while I didn’t, my wife did–I suppose it’s a good thing that our child will have a mother.
Anyway, just that morning I was having some lower back pain and my wife handed me two Tylenol tablets which I slugged down with my other morning pill and a huge jug of water. Later that evening my wife had all of our Tylenol products lined up in front of her computer and I asked what she was doing. After being informed of what I heard about days before, my wife announced that one of the bottles we had in our possession matched the lot numbers recalled. Being the genius I am, I asked the obvious question, “were the pills I took this morning part of that recall?”
“Throw them over here.”
rumble, catch, open, sniff, *cough* (please note, sniffing recalled Tylenol dust created by them banging around inside of the container is not the best idea I’ve ever had)
But none-the-less, I took two pills of a product that was recalled. What would I have done if I had taken some lot that was known to be poisoned in some way? What would you have done? Would you have even made it to that point? Did you run to your medicine cabinet and check all of your Tylenol products? Will you now? Have you ever been affected by some other recall?
