Just this morning I was faced with a dilemma. I noticed that one of my favorite seasonings was nearly gone. I panicked slightly and thought to myself, "I will have to stop at Walmart after work. But, when do I ever make time to run errands like that?" Then it dawned on me that I could order it on Amazon and save the trip to Wally World. GENIUS!

My significant other had that same thought about her favorite hot sauce. She figured she would order it online and everything would be great. Little did she know, but she signed up for a subscription to the hot sauce and now we have dozens of bottles of the stuff.


Not all items you purchase on Amazon are safe. Just recently Amazon launched a Product Safety and Recalls page for customers shopping in the online mega mall.

According to Amazon

We monitor public recall alert websites. We also learn of recalls from manufacturers and sellers. When we learn of a recall, we stop all impacted product offerings and hold any related stock in our Fulfillment Centers. We also contact customers that bought such products and sellers that may have offered such products, to tell them about the recall.

Recalls are typically called when a product is either of the following

  • Safety Hazards
  • Defects
  • Contamination
  • Regulatory Non-compliance

Amazon currently has many recalls active on its Product Safety page—everything from appliances to weedeaters and even a zipline kit.

(Could you imagine buying a zipline kit and finding out about a safety recall?)
