Prompted by yesterday’s news that a series of yoga pants were being recalled because they were basically see-through, a new report from Time magazine lists some other recalls of the past that have been initiated for what could be considered awkward reasons.

Although it’s certainly an odd situation, a tailpipe on the road can pose a significant safety hazard. And three years ago, various cereals were recalled by Kellogg because customers started to report vomiting and a nauseous feeling after consuming cereal that suffered from a weird taste and odor. Such recalls, as well as the other items on the list, are nothing to scoff at.
