      Yuch! Mazda Recall Prompted By Spiders

      2009 and 2010 Masza6s are affected

      Reading more like an urban legend than a recall notice, Japanese carmaker Mazda said it is recalling 52,000 cars because they might be infested - with spiders!

      The carmaker said all 52,000 of the Mazda6 models are in the U.S.

      While drivers might expect the recall was promoted by concerns that the creepy crawlers could emerge unexpectedly from the glove box or crawl up a driver's leg on a busy freeway, that's not it at all. The government says it worries the spiders will create nests that could clog vital passageways and eventually cause fuel tanks to spring leaks.

      Risk of fire

      As the canister is purged repeatedly during normal operation, the stress on the fuel tank may eventually result in a crack, potentially leading to fuel leakage ad an increased risk of fire," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a recall notice.

      According to NHTSA, Mazda is recalling 2009 and 2010 Mazda6s because "a certain type of spider may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent line," causing a possible restriction. Besides the cars sold in the U.S., another 13,000 cars are being recalled in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

      Dealers will inspect the recalled cars, checking the canisters for spider webs. If they find them, they will reportedly install a spring that will keep the insects from getting inside the part.

      Yellow sac spider?

      The recall notice did not specify what type of spider may be potentially infesting the Mazda6, but at least one media report identified it as the Yellow Sac spider. Sac spiders belong to the genus Cheiracanthium and the familyClubionidae, according to the University of Nebraska Extension Service.

      “They are quite small and easy to overlook-about 1/4 - 3/8 inch long, with no conspicuous markings. The front legs are longer than the other three pairs. Sac spiders are quite pale. A common house species, the yellow sac spider is pale greenish, tan or straw colored. Other sac spiders are light brown,” the service says on its website.

      And yes, they bite. Victims are advised to seek medical treatment.

      Spiders Force Recall of Mazda6 Models

      uel tank may crack, creating a fire hazard

      Mazda is recalling about 52,000 Mazda6 models from the 2009-2010 model years. The company said a “certain type of spider” may build a web iin the evaporative canister vent line, clogging the line. This in turn could eventually cause the fuel tank to leak, leading to fuel leakage and creating a fire hazard.

      Mazda did not identify the specific type of spider believe to be responsible for the problem.

      Dealers will inspect and clean up the canister vent line and install a spring to discourage spiders from entering. The recall is expected to begin before March 25, 2011.

      Customers may contat Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

      Circo Recalls Beaded Door Curtains Sold at Target

      Strangulation risk for children

      About 79,000 Circo beaded door curtains sold at Target stores are being recalled. Strangulations can occur when a child plays with the beaded strands by wrapping them around their necks or by creating loops in which they can insert their heads. Also, children can get entangled in the strands, which are prone to entangle, just by running through the doorway.

      The firm has received three reports of entanglement. In January 2009, a nine-year old girl was entangled while passing through the beads and nearly choked as she continued walking through the curtain. In January 2010, a six-year old girl in Reno, Nev. became entangled in the bead strands as she passed through them and suffered slight lacerations to her neck. In April 2010, a girl became entangled as the beads swung back behind her father who had walked through the beads before her. She was pulled off her feet and momentarily suspended before she regained her footing and she received scratches to her neck.

      The Circo pink door curtain is a set of two beaded door curtains, each of which is 12 inches wide and 72 inches long. The warnings on the packaging include: "Not for use in areas with children under 5 years of age. Plastic ornaments may pose strangulation or entanglement hazard. Not for use near cribs or playpens...". The photograph on the packaging shows an installed door curtain at the doorway of a girl's bedroom with pink wall color, child-themed lamp and clock. There is a CAUTION statement included in the installation instructions that states: "Do not tie bottom to form loops."

      Target stores sold the curtains nationwide and at target.com from January 2009 through May 2010 for between $13 (at target.com) and $15 in stores. They were made in China.

      Consumers should immediately take down the curtains and contact FAB/Starpoint for a full refund. FAB/Starpoint will provide a postage-free package to consumers to return the door curtain.

      For additional information, contact FAB/Starpoint toll-free at (888) 333-2684 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.fabny.com
