The FDA Has a Flickr Gallery of Recalled Products That Could Kill You

If you've ever found yourself staring at a dubious bottle of tablets from the back of a bathroom cabinet or suspicious-looking pudding from the local store, help may be at hand. The US Food and Drug Administration runs a wonderfully useful Flickr gallery to which it posts pictures of recalled products that might just kill you.

Discovered by Popular Science, the gallery shows many -- although admittedly not all -- of the products that it's had to recall for safety reasons. As you might expect there are a lot of legal highs and sexual performance drugs, but there are plenty of normals products too -- like tubs of organic cocoa, bags of salad and boxes of cookies.

Each photo is presented along with details about why and when the product was recalled. It's not a substitute for the formal recall reports issued by the Food and Drug Administration in the US, but its a simple and accessible resource. And, arguably, quite fun to look through too.
