When it comes to choosing and using all the equipment, food and supplies that it takes to raise a child today in the U.S., safety is typically among the top concerns for parents and other caregivers. With so much to think about, it's easy to get a little overwhelmed. This is no truer than with babies and young children who we need to watch intensely to help them steer clear of unnecessary injuries, illness and possibly worse caused by faulty or dangerous products.

For example, I found under the food and drug and allergen category that Recalls Plus posted an alert about a specific cupcake sold in Northern California Whole Foods Market stores. The advisory said the product has been recalled because some contained undeclared walnuts, posing a possible health threat to those with sensitivities towards nuts. In fact, the alert also indicated the product concerned had already made at least one person ill.
