Top 10 Product Recalls

Toyota recalls around 9 million cars for replacing two things 1) Faulty mats that meddle with the pedals and 2) Pedals that press themselves down thus giving an auto acceleration mode to the car every now and then.

Honda calls back around half a million cars for replacing window switches that might catch fire while they help in winding down the windows. (thus the passengers may end up having fingers looking like french fries)

U thought only cars can be recalled? Nope, recall history has been from cribs to medicines to processed beef. The last one was recalled because some of the cattle slaughtered were found reluctant to walk to the slaughter house and hence suspected of having diseases. (or were they unwilling to be slaughtered?)

Here is a list of top 10 product recalls in history.
