I only have three products in my feed, my feed and account are "looking good"..

Google can't share why my products have been in review for over 3 weeks?
Anyone experience this and have some insight?

Thank you very much

a review should take three-business-days or so.

most delays in (awaiting) a review are usually triggered by a few issues; e.g.
(a) a potential policy violation of an item, image, site, or type of product;
(b) submitted data not adhering to the rules or policies of a target-country;
(c) a recently registered feed or existing feed with unreported (syntax) errors;
(d) an item that has not been updated with respect to the most recent policies;
(e) certain (feed) data updates -- such as a new product or any new id;
(f) a feed that has not been updated (re-uploaded) in over a month;
(g) id values that change or are not unique per-item, or across multiple feeds;
(h) a landing-page or image that cannot be crawled properly, at all times;
(i) a feed submitted too frequently with respect to the expiration-date;
(j) any change to a website including images, microdata, content, or structure;
(k) items not listed as in stock or not in your current, physical, inventory;
(l) having more than a one registered feed -- only one feed is recommended.

try clicking on the account, feeds, and items, blue boxes --
under the diagnostics-tab, under the current-issues section.

if there are any obvious issues, simply make the corrections in the
feed or on the website and then re-upload the registered data-feed.

otherwise, forum members cannot look into data-feeds or account histories --
we would usually need more specific information such as exact feed and status
histories, diagnostics screen-captures, exact feed entry details, etc., posted
here within public-forum [minus any personal or private information] to offer
more specific suggestions.

generally, google may re-review an item, feed, or website at any time.

otherwise, if a review-status lingers for more than a few
business-days or so then, google may be contacted here --
