Twitter being used by USDA to announce recalls

The Department of Agriculture is now using Twitter in order to announce product recalls so that consumers can learn of them as quickly as possible.

As of now, there is a general USDA Twitter feed that announces general information, but a recent announcement says that state specific Twitter feeds will now be created.

Now food safety alerts will be tweeted out in order to inform residents about egg, meat and poultry products that are not safe.

Officials are hoping that this technique will help inform people who may be affected by recalls because it usually varies per state. The USDA will also send out information on how to protect food in cases of serious weather.

Pfizer issues recall of 1 million packs of birth control

Pfizer has issued a large recall of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets birth control packs after it was discovered that they mixed up the pills in a packaging error.

Nearly one million packets of the birth control have been recalled at this time. The oral birth control pills are supposed to contain 21 hormone tablets and seven sugar pills.

Pfizer discovered that some of the packets had too many hormone pills and others had too few and this mistake could result in unwanted pregnancies for women taking it. A spokesperson for Pfizer has stated that the issue has been corrected, but it was caused because of errors in the mechanics and other visual inspections.
