Drugs, food top 2010 recalls; few consumers aware

A Consumer Reports poll finds that just 20 percent of U.S. adults were aware of having purchased a drug or other product (other than a car) that had been recalled. Results indicate that half of Americans lack confidence in manufacturers and retailers to share safety information with the government; 40 percent lack confidence that manufacturers and retailers provide information to consumers on recalls, some 125 million of which took place last year. Among those who say they bought a recalled product, drugs and food top the list. Article
