PhotoMercedes Benz USA is recalling 69 model year 2014 GL350 BlueTEC 4Matic, GL450 4Matic, GL550 4Matic, and GL63 AMG vehicles manufactured November 4, 2013, through November 15, 2013.

The foldable second row seat bottom in the affected vehicles may not fold down low enough to allow proper use of the child seat anchors

Without the use of the lower anchor points, a child restraint may be insufficiently or improperly anchored to the seat, increasing the risk of injury to the child in the event of a crash.

Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the seat pan of the second row seat, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2014.

Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-800-367-6372.

A poor electrical ground connection in the affected vehicles may result in the dimming or failure of the tail lights. That would reduce the ability to warn other motorists of the driver's intentions of stopping or turning, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will replace the bulb holders if not previously updated and replace any corroded connectors, free of charge. Parts are not currently available.

Owners will be sent an interim notification in June 2014. A second letter will be mailed when parts are available, currently expected to be in August or September 2014.

PhotoMuncie Power Products is recalling 5,744 PTO Assembly Pressure Switches, part number 30T37594, manufactured June 2009, through June 2013, used in power take off (PTO) assemblies.

The installation of these pressure switches when used with a PTO assembly installed on a 2009-2014 Ford F350, F450 or F550 Super Duty chassis with a 6.8L gasoline engine, may result in the switch leaking oil.

The leaking oil may soak into the thermal blanket covering the exhaust, which when combined with heat from exhaust, may result in an increased risk of fire.

Alternator problem prompts Mazda recall

When the affected vehicles are driven in heavy rain or in deep puddles, the alternator belt may slip causing the Power Control module (PCM) to incorrectly assume failure of the charging system.

Once the PCM assumes that the charging system has failed, the vehicle will stop charging and could result in poor acceleration, loss of steering assist and windshield wiper operation, and a possible engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mazda6 vehicles recalled

The vehicle's evaporative canister vent hose could develop a blockage

Mazda North America Operations is recalling about 42,000 model year 2010-2012 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured September 14, 2009, through May 2, 2011, and equ...

PhotoMazda North America is recalling about 42,000 model year 2010-2012 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured September 14, 2009, through May 2, 2011, and equipped with 2.5L engine.

In the affected vehicles, spiders may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent hose, blocking it and causing the fuel tank to have an excessive amount of negative pressure. Negative pressure could cause the fuel tank to crack resulting in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module and inspect and clean the canister vent line. If a web was found in the line, the fuel tank and check valve on canister vent line will be replaced. These repairs will be done free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in April 2014.

Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's recall number associated with this campaign is 7214C.

PhotoVita Food Products of Chicago, Ill., is recalling 2,280 individual plastic jars of 12-ounce Elf Herring Fillets in Wine Sauce.

The jars actually contain herring fillets in sour cream and contains milk, an allergen nor declared among the ingredients.

There have been no illnesses reported to date in connection with this product.

The product was sent to retailers in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin beginning on December 26, 2013.

The single lot of ELF Herring Fillets in Wine Sauce that is the subject of this public announcement and recall should have been labeled as another ELF-branded product, Herring Fillets in Real Sour Cream.

Products from this lot can be identified by the best if used before date of 21 May 14 and lot number 03553, which can be found on the backside of the jar at the bottom of the label. The front of the label says “Elf Herring Fillets in Wine Sauce.”
