A Week of Scary Recalls: What's a Mom to Think?

Several popular and everyday baby products were recalled for safety reasons this week. First it was the 635,000 Dorel Asia cribs and then 1.5 million Graco strollers of various models and styles. We've also been hearing a lot about cadmium in children's jewelry.

Makes a mom wonder whether it's safe to even set foot in baby retailers and toy stores anymore.

On one hand, I'm glad the consumer protection police are on the job and taking steps against more tragedies, but unfortunately, most of these recalls happen because a tragedy -- usually involving a baby or child -- has already taken place.

On the other, I'm concerned that all the baby and child product recalls are because more manufacturers are eliminating important steps and making crappy products.

What's your view?
