Gov. Launches Product Recall App For Android

This week launched a slew of new apps to help citizens, including a product recall app for Android.

The app lets you search by name for products to see if they’ve been recalled. It also shows you pictures of the recalled items and what to do with it if you’ve already bought it.

The Recalls app brings together recalls from each of the four relevant agencies, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Food and Drug Administration, and the Department of Agriculture.

The app even has a button so that you can report a potential problem with a product.

Now if they could just make one that uses your phone’s camera to see if there’s mold inside your Capri Sun pouch
