American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 18,352 model year 2006 Acura RSX vehicles manufactured January 18, 2006, through August 12, 2006; and model year 2006...

PhotoAmerican Honda Motor Co. is recalling 18,352 model year 2006 Acura RSX vehicles manufactured January 18, 2006, through August 12, 2006; and model year 2006-2007 Honda S2000 vehicles manufactured January 19, 2006, through November 13, 2006.

The brake booster may be unable to maintain a vacuum when the brake pedal is depressed, decreasing brake assist. With reduced braking assistance, the vehicle may require additional brake pedal force to prevent a lengthened stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake booster assembly. If necessary, the dealers will replace the booster assembly free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 12, 2013.

PhotoZydus Pharmaceuticals USA is recalling one lot of warfarin 2 mg tablets, Lot #MM5767, expiration date June 2014 to the retail level.

Four tablets have been found to be oversized in one product complaint. Ingestion of a greater than intended dose of warfarin could lead to an increased pharmacological effect and, as a result, patients would be more likely to develop bleeding as an adverse reaction and in some patients that bleeding into a critical organ could be fatal. The risk of bleeding is increased if overdosing is repeated continuously on a daily basis.

There have been no reports of adverse events or any additional product complaint related to this lot to date.

The product is packaged in HDPE Bottle of 1000's count, which may have been dispensed to patients in smaller bottles. It can be identified by its NDC #6838205310. The product was distributed nationwide in the United States to wholesalers/distributors, retailers and mail order providers, from November 2012 to December 2012.

Zydus has notified its direct account customers by sending the recall notification letter by FedEx next day air service and is working with customers to arrange for product return.

Anyone with an existing inventory of this particular lot should stop use and distribution, quarantine the recalled lots immediately and call INMAR at 1-800-967-5952 between the hours of 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday, to arrange for their return. Patients who have tablets of this lot should make sure all the tablets are of the same size and, if unsure, should consult their dispensing pharmacy.

PhotoMercedes-Benz is recalling 71 model year 2013 SLK250 and SLK350 vehicles manufactured October 9, 2012, through November 20, 2012.

The vehicles are equipped with an occupant classification system (OCS) that may not correctly differentiate between a child seat or a very light person being in the front passenger seat.

If the OCS incorrectly classifies a very light person as being a child seat, in the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, the system would deactivate the passenger airbag, increasing the risk of injury.

Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side seat cushion including the OCS. The recall is expected to begin during June 2013.
