It seems that my exploding toothbrush experience wasn’t as unusual as the manufacturers claimed. Now Health Canada has announced a recall. They don’t make that model toothbrush any more. I got interviewed over the phone by Canadian Press. Nice to have a little effect on things.
UPDATE (Nov 3, 2011): Now I’ve got some fairly off-the-cuff quotes on Yahoo. Oh well, live and learn. Funny being on the other side of the interview pad. No great “explosion” of visits to the blog yet, but I hope people will check out the funny drawings!
UPDATE 2 (Nov 3) –the CBC has a story, thankfully without me in it. But funny comments: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/prince-edward-island/story/2011/11/03/pei-exploding-toothbrushes-recall-584.html
UPDATE YET AGAIN: (Nov 4) Fark.com has gotten ahold of it, and someone linked my cartoon.
