Your Heart Stops Beating When You Think You Unintentionally Hurt Your Baby

I couldn't breath this morning for a good 5 minutes.

I just happen to be awake at 6am, reading emails and i get one from baby center about a recall. Ok so I read it. It's about Mylicon Infant Gas Drops - Dye Free 1 oz and 1/2 oz bottles sold after October 5th. The FDA found Shards of METAL in certain lot numbers! So I start thinking, I bought a bottle of Dye Free accidentally ( I usually buy the colored one ) 1 week before Halloween at Walmart. My eyes got big, I'm reading the lot numbers, and I go in Bobby's room looking all over for this bottle that Damien said was empty a few days ago. So I'm tearing apart his drawers and I wake Damien up, tell him what is going on. So he starts looking with me. He opens the diaper bag and theres the bottle! I grab it, run in here and look at the computer.... Its the lot after mine was made. THANK GOD!
All I could think is OMG, I gave my baby something with metal in it that could make him sick! HOW THE HELL DOES JOHNSON AND JOHNSON DISTRIBUTE A PRODUCT FOR BABIES WITH METAL SHARDS IN IT! That is something expect from a Chinese Brand, Not from Johnson and Johnson. I'm half tempted to boycott all of their products. They put these babies lives in danger! Aren't there certain precautions, and tests they have to do with every batch of things they make? How is it, the recall wasn't made until November 11th. Over a month after distribution. How did they not realize this before hand? There should be stricter regulations put on ANY medications made for over the counter for children and babies. These drops were suppose to help babies, not make them sick. I will not be buying this product again. I'll stick to Gripe water.

Ok I think i'm done with panicing mommy mode for the moment. :)
