A month into 2011, and manufacturers have already pulled what may seem like a startling number of products from the market due to mandatory or voluntary recalls.
But these recalls, affecting products nationwide from clothing to antacid, are more common than consumers might think, according to local health officials.
These officials, whose job it is to look for recalls that may affect those on the Eastside, also say that while consumers may be ill-informed when it comes to nationwide recalls, there are both new and tried-and-true ways the public can stay up-to-date with the latest news.

âWeâve played our two best games (against Rosamond and Kern Valley) but still come away with two losses,â said coach Jon Michener. âWeâre improving but we need a win.â

The Warriorsâ win came down to the wire. Coach Darrin Chirrick put his squad in stall mode for the last 4-5 minutes of play.
âWe were up by six points and I wanted to keep us in the driverâs seat,â said Chirrick. The tactic worked, but just barely.
