We are officially in the dog days of summer, especially here in Washington, D.C. As we think of activities to do that involve air conditioning, now is a great time to recap some of the biggest recalls of 2017 to date. This year’s recall volume is already outpacing 2016, and we hope that you’ll check your home for these products. If you do have any of these products (or other recalled items), stop using them immediately, and reach out to our support team at Bonnie. You can always stay up to date on recalls by signing up for free, personalized product recall alerts here.
