I’d like to apologize. You see, this post isn’t finished and I am running out of time to get it done. Last night, instead of working on this, I decided to watch a movie with my husband. I went to work today, came home, made dinner, then made banana bread that is baking right now. That being said: I’m just going to post what I have. -Terrii

Of the projected 150,000 consumers to be affected by this recall, only 15 have come forward. All consumers named “X” by their written statements hail from a rural region of Southern Florida.
