The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with IKEA North America, of Conshohocken, Pa., is announcing the recall for repair of children’s wall-mounted lamps due to a strangulation hazard.
Cooking at home may be cheaper (and possibly healthier) than eating out, but how you cook can actually determine the cost of your family’s food bill. Unfortunately, the diet that costs most may very well explain why low income families struggle to keep their families fed healthily than those that are more financially stable.
