Toyota Recalls 870,000 Vehicles for Airbag Malfunctions Caused by Insects.

Toyota has announced that it is recalling 870,000 of its motor vehicles, including all regular and hybrid 2012 and 2013 Camrys, Venzas and Avalons, due to a problem which can cause the airbags in those cars to malfunction and suddenly deploy.

Toyota stated that it has received 38 reports of problems with the airbags in these vehicles, including three instances in which the airbags wrongly deployed.  Toyota asserts that the problem has most often been caused by spiders building webs in the cars’ air conditioning drainage tube, which causes the tube to become blocked.  Water then drips down onto the airbag control module and causes a short circuit, which can result in the dashboard airbag warning light to come on or, in some cases, for the driver’s side airbag to deploy.  The issue poses a serious risk to drivers of the vehicles, especially if the car is in motion when the problem occurs.

Other problems, including issues with power steering, can arise from the same spider-related problems.

Toyota is asking owners of the affected vehicles to go to their local Toyota dealers to have the problem fixed at no charge.

Sunscreen Recalled for Potentially Danger Bacteria, Fungus Contamination.

W.S. Badger Co., Inc., a New Hampshire-based sunscreen company, has announced the complete recall of its 4-ounce SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Lotion and one lot of its 4-ounce SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion. The recall comes after finding that the sunscreen has potentially been contaminated with bacteria and fungus

The company stated that the sunscreen passed initial safety tests before it was shipped. But the contaminations by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis, and Acremonium fungi were discovered in some of the sunscreen during a standard re-test of the products.

The bacteria and fungus found in the sunscreen can cause a range of personal injuries, including skin rashes, ear infections, and blood infections, which can lead to pneumonia, severe illness, or wrongful death.

Badger implemented the recall voluntarily, and stated that its other products are not affected by the potential contamination.

No illnesses or personal injuries have been reported from the contamination, but Badger is asking its customers to return their recalled defective products for a full refund.

Popular Pastry Recalled by General Mills.

General Mills,  the national food sale giant, has issued a recall of the popular Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls.  The recall came after broken pieces of plastic were discovered in some of the pastries during a quality assurance test.

The Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing are sold throughout the United States, and are a very popular frozen pastry item. Last week, the company discovered that a mistake at one of its factories may have resulted in broken pieces of plastic being mixed into the dough which composes the pastries.

The recall affects 8-count single packages and double packages with sell-by dates in October 2013. Any person who purchased the rolls is advised to throw them away or call General Mills for a replacement. Consumers should not eat the rolls under any circumstances.

The product recall does not affect other types of Pillsbury Cinnamon Roll products. There have been no reports of injuries from customers consuming the cinnamon rolls.
