The recalled transmitters are components of Linear PERS or personal emergency solutions products and allow users to push a button on the transmitter to summon assistance. The transmitter may be worn as a pendant on a lanyard around the user's neck, on a band around the user's wrist or as a belt clip.

The recall includes model numbers DXS-62A (black wristband and a gray pendant), DXS-62A1 (ivory plastic belt clip pendant) and DXS-64 (gray plastic pendant with a green circle in the center) which all have batteries that are sealed into the products.

The manufactured date range of the recalled products is from June 2008 through April 2011 written as a date code.

The transmitters, manufactured in China, were sold at independent PERS distributors and dealers nationwide from June 2008, through July 2011, for about $45.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 209 accessory Chrome Hand Control Lever Kits, part number 36700053, intended for use on 2014 Harley Davidson XL Sportster motorcycles.

The kits may have an excess of chrome plating on the brake lever which could prevent the full return of the front brake master cylinder piston. If the brake master cylinder piston does not return to the proper position, the front brake pressure would not be relieved and the front wheel may lock up, increasing the risk of a crash.

Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the affected front brake levers -- as necessary -- free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2014.

Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson's number for this recall is 0156.
