Recall Round-Up: September 21, 2018

Every week we scour the internet to bring you the latest information on product and automotive recalls in this recurring series: Recall Round-Up.

This week we cover a GM recall of pick-up trucks and SUVs, a Nissan recall for rear brake defects, an E. coli contamination, and a flammable daybed from Cost Plus World Market.

  • GM Pick-Up Trucks & SUVs

    GM Announced this week they were recalling over 1 million trucks and SUVs due to a possible electric power steering defect.  The vehicles in question may experience a sudden loss of power steering which may increase the risk of crash. The vehicles included in this recalls are 2015 models of the Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade. GM will notify owners via USPS if their vehicle is included. We also suggest visiting NHTSA online and enter your VIN to check in advance.

  • 2015-2017 Nissan Cars & SUVs

    Nissan is recalling over 240k cars and SUVs in the US and Canada due to a rear brake defect that can be a fire hazard. The recall includes 2015-17 Murano, 2016-17 Maxima, 2014-18 Pathfinder, and 2017 Infiniti QX60. NHTSA reported the anti-lock brake pump can leak brake fluid causing an electrical short. This increases the risk of a fire. Nissan urges drivers who see the anti-lock brake warning light illuminated in their dash for more than 10 seconds should turn park the vehicle outdoors and away from other structures and vehicles, turn off the vehicle and discontinue driving. If the light remains on, they should contact a licensed dealership to have the car towed for service. Nissan will begin replacing the defective part October 15th.

  • Cargill Meat Solutions – Ground Beef

    This week over 130k pounds of ground beef were recalled due to a possible E. Coli contamination. Cargill Meat Solutions is working with the US Department of Agriculture to determine a cause. At this time, reportedly 1 person has died and 17 others have fallen ill after consuming the affected ground beef. The recall covers beef products packaged on June 21, 2018 and the public is urged to check freezers for products purchased months ago and saved. The ground beef should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund. For more information on this recall, visit the USDA Food Safety & Inspection Service website.

  • Cost Plus World Market Daybed

    Cost Plus World Market announced a recall of their Hartley flip daybeds this month. According the US CPSC, the bottom cushion of the daybed does not meet the flammability standard for mattresses and could therefore pose a fire hazard. This is a precautionary recall as no injuries have been reported at this time. If you purchased the Hartley Flip bed from Cost Plus World Market from January 2017-January 2018, please contact any Cost Plus store for a free replace of the bottom cushion. For more information, visit the Cost Plus World Market website and search for the listing under Product Recalls.
