Food And Automobiles Recalled This Week

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released a new list of recalled vehicles. They did so to protect consumers from errors made in design or production. A recall occurs when the manufacturers of a product or the NHTSA determine that a vehicle poses a danger to the driver, if it fails to meet safety standards. The manufacturers must notify the consumer and offer to replace, repair, or otherwise correct the error, free of charge.

If a driver learns their vehicle is on the recall list, they should immediately contact the manufacturers for instructions on how to obtain repairs or replacements. If they believe their car is faulty, but have not received any notification, it is important they contact the manufacturer or NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.

The major vehicle recalls include:

  • BMW - BMW of North America is recalling their 2016 models because the airbags may not deploy. They cite residue on the module as the cause. This error places the occupants at risk and poses a danger for further injury.
  • Bugatti - Bugatti is recalling their cars from 2006-2013 because the jacking plates may become loose or detach from the car. The plating may detach and strike other vehicles on the road, thus increasing the threat of an accident.
  • Ford Motor Company - The Ford Motor Company is recalling their Ford 2016 model and Lincoln model from 2015-2016. They cite that the engine block heater may overheat as the reason for the recall. If it does overheat, it can cause a fire.
  • Jaguar - Jaguar is recalling their Land Rover North America, model 2010. They found that the fuel tank outlet flange may leak, thus increasing the risk of fire.

In other news, the United States Department of Agriculture is recalling pork. Manufacturers Advancepierre Foods recalled 3,469 pounds of their breaded pork product, with a use-by date of March 15, 2016. During a routine labeling review, they found the meat contained eggs, a known allergen, which was not labeled. Consumers who purchased the meat are urged not to eat the product, and should either throw it away or return it to where they purchased the product.

Food and automobile manufacturers have a responsibility to test their products and ensure they meet safety regulations.
