    Thanks to God for good & reputable company like NBC for quality checks that revealed the change in color and steps taken to recall the products. My only concern is that “Carefree syndrome” on the part of distributors & retailers would not scuttle the products recall efforts. And where such had been purchased by consumers; Oh! God help us.
