    Kawasaki recalls EX300BDFAL motorcycles

    The brake's anti-lock function may not perform properly

    Kawasaki Motors is recalling 1,083 model year 2013 EX300BDFAL motorcycles manufactured August 16, 2012, through April 2, 2013.

    Due to a manufacturing error, the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) may malfunction and lose anti-lock functionality, allowing for wheel lock up and skidding, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Kawasaki will notify owners and dealers will replace the affected ABS pumps with a new assembly. The recall is expected to begin on, or about August 5, 2013.

    Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.

These stationary activity centers have a support seat covered in blue fabric attached to a large white metal frame and include a variety of brightly colored toys surrounding the seat. The yellow sun toy is attached to the seat frame on a flexible stalk with either three or five brightly colored rings. A date code is located in the lower right corner of the sewn in label on the back of the blue seat pad.

      Recall of Townsend Farms Frozen Organic Antioxidant Blend expanded

      The product may be contaminated with hepatitis A

      Townsend 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.
