PhotoIsuzu Manufacturing Services of America is recalling 8,816  model year 2003-2004 Rodeo and Axiom, and 2003 Rodeo Sport vehicles that were originally sold in, or are currently registered in, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kentucky and Missouri.

The vehicles may experience excessive corrosion near the forward mounting point bracket for the left or right rear suspension lower link. The corrosion may allow the bracket to detach from the frame, affecting vehicle handling and increasing the risk of a crash.

Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear suspension lower link bracket area. For vehicles in which little or no corrosion is found, the area will be treated with an anti-corrosive compound. For vehicles in which corrosion has damaged the rear suspension lower link bracket and affected its connection to the vehicle frame, a reinforcement bracket will be installed.

In the event the corrosion is so severe that the reinforcement bracket remedy would not be sufficient, Isuzu will offer to repurchase the vehicle for an amount based on the Kelley Blue Book "Private Party" price. All inspections and remedies will be provided free of charge for vehicles that are 10 years old or less.

For vehicles older than 10 years, Isuzu will offer a free remedy, but only if the vehicle is presented to an Isuzu service facility dealer within 12 months of when owner notifications were issued, after that time owners will be charged for the repairs.

The recall is expected to begin in mid-December 2013. Isuzu owners may contact Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727.

In the affected vehicles, the calculated range of the remaining fuel displayed on the instrument cluster may be higher than the actual range. Additionally, the fuel level indicated by the fuel gauge may also be higher than actual amount in the tank. These inaccuracies may result in the vehicle expectedly running out of fuel and stalling, increasing the risk of a crash.

In this case, the passenger seats may be equipped with defective wiring harnesses resulting in intermittent contact with the harness plug. This may cause the passenger seat frontal and knee airbags to be deactivated. In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, this could increase the risk of injury to the front passenger.

PhotoVolkswagen is recalling about 62,000 Tiguans from the 2009-2011 model years. The company said that, in isolated cases, a fuse may trip in the Tiguan, resulting in failure of one of the two vehicle light circuits. This in turn causes individual light functions to fail.

However, the company said the vehicle’s electric circuitry ensures that some lights remain on all around the vehicle. The driver is immediately informed of this on the instrument cluster.

There have been no crashes or injuries reported.

In December 2013, Volkswagen plans to notify all owners of affected vehicles and will instruct them to arrange for an appointment with an authorized Volkswagen dealer. At no cost to customers, dealers will replace the existing F16 position fuse with a new, optimized hard-coated fuse .

Jetta Hybrid
Volkswagen is also announcing an upcoming safety recall affecting 3,836, 2013-2014 model year Volkswagen Jetta Hybrids. It has been discovered that in the Jetta Hybrid the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DQ200), electric malfunctions could occur in the gearbox power supply if synthetic gearbox oil is used. This applies in particular if the vehicle is subject to a hot and humid climate, coupled with a high proportion of stop and go driving.

In December 2013, Volkswagen plans to notify all owners of affected vehicles and will instruct them to arrange for an appointment with an authorized Volkswagen dealer. At no cost to customers, dealers will replace the existing synthetic gearbox oil with a new mineral-based oil with non-corrosive additives.

Vega One Nutritional Shakes and Sport Performance Protein products withdrawn

Trace amounts of a naturally occurring antibiotic have been found in the products

Sequel Naturals, dba “Vega,” is withdrawing a limited quantity of its Vega One Nutritional Shakes and Sports Performance Protein products from the market ...

PhotoSequel Naturals, dba “Vega,” is withdrawing a limited quantity of its Vega One Nutritional Shakes and Sports Performance Protein products from the market

Trace amounts of chloramphenicol (CAP), a naturally occurring antibiotic, have been found in the products.

Chloramphenicol is a prescription drug commonly used to treat typhoid fever and eye infections around the world. It should only be used under medical supervision, and has been associated with rare cases of aplastic anemia and allergic reactions in some people.

There have been no reported allergic reactions from the listed products.

None of the Vega product formulations include CAP as an ingredient; however, an enzyme that was provided by a third party supplier, which constitutes less than 1% of the product ingredients, was found to contain trace amounts of CAP.

As a precautionary measure, Vega is voluntarily withdrawing all of the listed product from the market and has taken steps to ensure all future products are CAP-free, including using a different source of enzymes to prevent further potential contamination and assure consumers of product purity. These actions complete a voluntary product withdrawal and ingredient resourcing that applied to Canadian products as well.

The Vega products were distributed in retail stores nationwide.

The following products are being withdrawn from sale:

PhotoHarley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 436 model year 2014 Trike motorcycles manufactured July 24, 2013, through September 2, 2013.

Due to an incorrectly machined part, the motorcycle may have an excessive steering angle allowing the inner fairing to contact the rear brake fluid reservoir resulting in a loss of brake fluid. Additionally, the steering damper may be damaged. Loss of brake fluid from the rear reservoir would reduce brake performance. Steering damper damage could reduce the rider's ability to control the motorcycle. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trikes and replace the fork stem bracket, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to in late November 2013.

Owners may contact Harley-Davidson at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson's recall number is 0152.

PhotoUSPlabs of Dallas, Texas, is recalling certain of its OxyElite Pro dietary supplement.

The action was taken after the company was notified by the FDA stating that the products have been linked to liver illnesses and that there is a reasonable probability that the products are adulterated.

The company was also warned that if it did not initiate a voluntary recall, the FDA could -- by law – order it to stop distributing the dietary supplements and notify other parties to stop distributing them.

The products involved in the recall include:

OxyElite Pro Super Thermo capsules

  • two count capsules UPC #094922417275

  • Grape Bubblegum 4.6 oz UPC #094922447500
  • Green Apple 4.6 oz. UPC #094922426499

FDA also notified USPlabs about findings indicating a link between the use of the above listed OxyElite Pro products and a number of liver illnesses reported in Hawaii. The agency noted that cases of liver damage after use of these OxyElite Pro products had been found in a number of other states.

A review of 46 medical records indicates 27 patients (58%)) had taken a dietary supplement labeled as OxyElite Pro prior to becoming ill. Seventeen of the 27 patients (63%) reported that OxyElite Pro was the only dietary supplement they were taking. One death has occurred among these patients, another patient has required a liver transplant, and others await liver transplants.

In a warning letter issued to USPlabs on Oct. 11, 2013, the FDA informed the company that OxyElite Pro and another dietary supplement called VERSA-1 were deemed to be adulterated. The products contained aegeline, a new dietary ingredient (i.e., an ingredient not marketed in the United States before Oct. 15, 1994) that lacks a history of use or other evidence of safety. The letter stated that failure to immediately cease distribution of all dietary supplements containing aegeline may result in enforcement action.

FDA continues to advise consumers not to use any dietary supplements labeled OxyElite Pro or VERSA-1.

Consumers can contact USPlabs at 1(800) 890-3067 (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. EST) or info@usplabsdirect.com.

PhotoGlass Onion Catering of Richmond, Calif., is recalling approximately 181,620 pounds of ready-to-eat salads and sandwich wrap products with fully-cooked chicken and ham.

The products may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

The products bear the establishment number “P-34221” inside the USDA mark of inspection and include:

  • 12 oz. packages of “delish pan pacific chop salad”
  • 13.4 oz. packages of “delish California style grilled chicken salad”
  • 9.9 oz. packages of “delish uncured applewood smoked ham & cheese wrap”
  • 10.5 oz. packages of “delish grilled chicken caesar wrap”
  • 10.9 oz. packages of “delish southwestern chicken wrap”
  • 11.5 oz. packages of “delish greek brand low-calorie grilled chicken wrap”
  • 9.9 oz. packages of “delish white chicken club wrap”
  • 11.2 oz. packages of “delish asian style chicken wrap”
  • 13.4 oz. packages of “atherstone Fine Foods Southwestern Style White Chicken Wrap with Chimichurri Sauce”
  • 10.5 oz. packages of “atherstone Fine Foods Asian Style White Chicken Wrap with Mango Vinaigrette”
  • 9.9 oz. packages of “atherstone Fine Foods Grilled White Chicken Caesar Wrap with Caesar Dressing”
  • 10.7 oz. packages of “super fresh Foods California Grilled Chicken Salad, Low Fat Mendocino Mustard Dressing”
  • 10.7 oz. packages of “Lunch Spot Southwestern Style Chicken Wrap, Chile & Lime Dressing”
  • 9.2 oz. packages of “super fresh Foods Pan Pacific Chopped Chicken Salad, Ginger Soy Dressing”
  • 10.7 oz. plastic containers of “TRADER JOE’S Field Fresh Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken.”
  • 11 oz. plastic containers of “TRADER JOE’S MEXICALI SALAD with Chili Lime Chicken.”

The products were produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6, 2013 and shipped to distributions centers intended for retail sale in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

Working in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), FDA, the California Department of Public Health, the Washington State Department of Health, and the Arizona Department of Health Services, The U.S. Food and Safety and Inspection Service FSIS has determined that there is a link between the grilled chicken salads and the illness cluster. Twenty-six case-patients have been identified in three states with indistinguishable E. coli O157:H7 PFGE (genetic fingerprint) patterns with illness onset dates ranging from Sept 29, 2013 to Oct. 26, 2013. Based on epidemiological information, 15 case-patients reported consumption of ready-to-eat pre-packaged salads prior to illness onset. A traceback investigation determined Glass Onion Catering was the supplier of the products implicated in the outbreak.

Because this is a ready-to-eat product, consumers are urged to to destroy it.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Tom Atherstone, company president, at (510) 236-8905.
