The passenger airbag may not fully inflate

Welding on the passenger airbag inflator may fracture when the airbag is deployed, allowing some gas to vent behind the instrument panel, instead of into the air bag. As a result the airbag may not fully inflate, increasing the risk of injury.

PhotoThe U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public notification of a recall being conducted by the Chilean Ministry of Health for chicken products after official notification from the government of Chile of the positive result for dioxin.

FSIS has determined that 188,522 lbs of chicken may be affected and 126,082 lbs is currently being held. The agency is investigating the distribution of the remaining 62,440, lbs. and verifying if additional shipments are involved. FSIS may expand the public notification and will take necessary and appropriate action after analyzing updated information received from the government of Chile.

FSIS is performing effectiveness checks in the U.S. by verifying that those companies who have received implicated product from the Chile-initiated recall have been notified and that all adulterated product is held and destroyed.

FSIS has conducted an analysis of the Chilean test results and determined that the risk to consumers is negligible. The agency continues to investigate distribution of the product and will take immediate action on new information.

FSIS is not announcing a recall at this time because the establishment most directly associated with producing the adulterated product has recalled product and USDA works with its counterparts to conduct effectiveness checks in U.S. In this case, the Chilean Ministry of Health initiated a recall of this product.

A problem with stabilizer link on the front strut increases the risk of a crash

PhotoMitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) is recalling 305 model year 2013 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured January 17, 2013, through January 25, 2013.

The stabilizer link on the front strut was improperly welded. As a result, the link may detach and cause damage to the tire and/or brake hose. If the stabilizer link bracket damages the tire and/or brake line, the driver may have more difficulty controlling the steering of the vehicle, or the vehicle may require a longer stopping distance to come to a complete and controlled stop. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

PhotoGeneral Motors is recalling four model year 2012 Chevrolet Volt vehicles manufactured March 1, 2012, through April 17, 2012.

Due to a brake pressure modulator valve problem, the vehicles do not relieve brake pressure from the front brakes during an anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC), or traction control event. One or both front brakes may lock up and not release, which could cause a loss of steering control and/or a lengthened distance needed to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a new brake pressure modulator valve free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 12, 2013.

Honda re-recalls Fit vehicles

A fix from an earlier recall may not have done the job

PhotoHonda is re-recalling 143,083 model year 2007-2008 Fit vehicles covered under a recall issued in 2010.

The remedy applied in the earlier recall may have been insufficient. In the affected vehicles, over time, the plastic cover may separate from the master power window switch allowing water to enter the driver's window and reach the master power window switch.

If the master power window switch is damaged as a result of the water intrusion, overheating and failure of the switch may result. An overheated switch can cause smoke, melting and fire.

Honda will notify owners in July 2013, and will instruct owners to take their vehicles to dealers to have a free inspection conducted. If the switch is damaged, it will be replaced free of charge. If the switch is not damaged, the owners will be instructed to await a second notification that will instruct them to return to the dealer to have a replacement switch installed free of charge.

Honda says it expects to have sufficient parts inventory to notify owners of vehicles with undamaged switches to return to dealers for replacement switches in Fall 2013.

Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's recall number is JA6.

PhotoTownsend Farms of Fairview, Ore., is expanding its recall of Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend, 3 lb. bag with UPC 0 78414 40444 8.

The recall is due to the potential for hepatitis A contamination.

The recall codes are located on the back of the package with the words "BEST BY" followed by the code T122114 sequentially through T053115, followed by a letter. All letter designations are included in the recall.

Townsend Farms is expanding the recall after the FDA and the CDC confirmed  that the epidemiological evidence supports a clear association between the hepatitis A illness outbreak and one lot of organic pomegranate seeds used in the Frozen Organic Antioxidant blend subject to the recall.

The epidemiological evidence does not support an association between the illness outbreak and the four other berry products (raspberry, blueberry, strawberry and dark cherry) in the Frozen Organic Antioxidant blend (and which have also been used in other Townsend Farms Frozen Organic products) or any other Fresh or Frozen berry products produced by Townsend Farms.

This expansion does NOT AFFECT the previous recall information regarding Harris Teeter Organic Antioxidant Berry Blend, 10 oz. bag UPC 0 72036 70463 4.

For questions or more information, contact Townsend Farms Customer Service Representative by phone at 1-800-875-5291 Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. PDT, or by email to townsendfarms5148@stericycle.com.
