We know that faulty products are a reality, though many people do not realize the full extent of the problem. One type of product has drawn our attention since the beginning of the year – chicken products.

We have seen them recalled due to allergen contamination, incorrect labeling, and one that had wood inside the food. This has us wondering if chicken products are more dangerous than others.

All industries are affected by faulty designs, manufacturing errors, and issues with labeling. It is important to keep track of the items you and your family use and consume.
