A voluntary recall on individually-wrapped American cheese slices is presently in effect, following a notice by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The request to return the Kraft Heinz Food Company product is due to the likelihood that a fine ribbon of individual packaging film may be stuck to the slice after the wrapping has been removed. The FDA is concerned that the unresolved strip could potentially cause a choking hazard. The Belize Agricultural Health Authority, BAHA, the Ministry of Health and the Belize Bureau of Standards is advising the public to return products with the manufacturing codes S54 or S55. Consumers are also advised not to purchase items from any retail establishments selling the defective products.

Or how about grow up and take some responsibility for your own life. Tinned food is also dangerous until you get it out of the can. Maybe the FDA should appoint a designated unwrapper for every house who will ensure the food is correctly unwrapped before consumption. Maybe he can feed you with a nerf fork because eating alone is dangerous.

Then they shouldn't buy them or handle them. Like guns, knives, motorcycles, etc

It's amazing to me that I survived 76 years without ANY of these protections. What dangerous decades I lived through. Come to think of it; none of my friends died, choked or were maimed by the "wild West" that we obviously grew up in. It warms the cockles of my heart to know that we are all being protected now.

Another example of gov. taking away personal responsibility - sue - sue - soooo eeee!

I'm happy to be able to build a house where a child could fall off the stairs if the mother is too ---whatever --- to teach the kid - or the baby could get his fat head between the rails and not know how get it out.

One of the reasons I like living in Belize is personal responsibility.

The gov't is not responsible for the "sue sue sooooo eeee" - it's lawyers convincing John Q Public he/she is "entitled"

Won't even go there regarding personal responsibility in my beloved 2nd home.
