The precautionary principle

I noticed the following announcement in today’s paper:
Despite rigorous quality controls, ASDA has been made aware of a production fault with its Play & Learn Wooden Fruit & Veg Play Set. ... ASDA has decided to take the precautionary measure of withdrawing this product…
Well I can't say that I'm surprised.

"Wooden Fruit & Veg"! Some of us suspected that all that green propaganda wasn't to be believed. It's probably wise to stick to a diet of Deep Fried Mars Bars.

Maybe the wooden fruit has accompianing wooden Worcester Sauce which has been coloured with the bizarrely named Sudan 1 food dye!
