Why the Recall?

Recalls happen when there is a problem with a product that makes it unsafe to use. This could be because the product might hurt someone, doesn't work properly, or has other safety issues. Amazon is making sure that customers stay safe by recalling these items.

Recalls can come for many reasons, but mostly there are recalls because items are defective, have safety concerns, or might be contaminated.
