If you are experiencing a problem with any product, please contact the distributor or manufacturer listed on the packaging, and return the product to us.  We will ask you to give us as much information as possible.  In some cases, we will need to report a safety problem to the FDA.  You may also visit the FDA site to view all product recalls currently active in the US.
