According to the recent reports from the Consumer Reports website, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration along the Nissan automaker is issuing a recall for all 2010 and 2011 Sentras.
The announcement states that over 33,800 units of the mentioned Sentra models have to be taken back to the dealerships due to an issue with their battery terminals. The company reveals that the engine may stall unexpectedly leading the vehicle to crash. The problem happened because during the manufacturing process, the battery terminals were covered with a zinc coating that was thicker than necessary.
Because of the faulty battery terminals, the engine can also present problems when the driver tries to restart the car. The national agency assured the media that the issue affects only the vehicles manufactured during May, July, August, September and October of 2010 and are equipped with the MR20 engines.
As a Seattle car accident lawyer I want to remind all owners of the recalled Nissan Sentras that it is against the law to sell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product. If you own a Sentra that has been recalled, you can take it into your local dealer where they will perform a thorough inspection for free.

Recent news reports that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Nygala Corp. have recently issued a recall for more than 10,000 Halloween Projection Flashlights. According to the articles, the flashlights have a great possibility of overheating and posing threats to consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website posted the announcement last week. All products that are under this recall alert have to be returned to the distributers and should be kept away from others to handle it.
The reports show that the recalled flashlights can overheat leading consumers to being injured. The orange and black recalled items that are made of plastic are sold with different lenses that are attached to the flashlight so several images can be projected. The manufacturer’s codes “HW189”and UPC 677916518266 are printed on the package.
According to the news, discount stores in the States sold the faulty items for $1 between August 2012 and October of 2011.

According to recent news from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, an alert recall was issued for over 6,000 Mophie Juice Pack Air rechargeable batteries and its external cases. The packs being recalled pose an alleged fire hazard even though this item was designed to serve as an external battery only.
Official statements say consumers could burn their hands while handling the product and that there were over 40 reports from several consumers saying that the external case got to the point of becoming completely deformed after burning due to the overheating batteries.
The news says that 110 complaints were reported to Morphie claiming batteries were becoming allegedly too warm to the touch. Some cases of minor burns to consumers’s hands have already surfaced.
I, a Vancouver personal injury attorney hope to see no consumers being injured while handling this product. The iPod touch external battery cases should be an extra protection for iPod owners, not an injury threat.

According to the news reports from the FDA and other news outlets, the Diamond Crystal Brands Inc. from Savannah, GA, has issues a recall for the GFS® sugar canisters because the non-dairy coffee creamers were inadvertently filled with undeclared milk.
The product allegedly used in the recalled sugar canisters contains caseinate, which happens to also be a milk derivative. Since it wasn’t stated on the product’s label, the company decided to recall the items.
Individuals with cases of life-threatening milk allergies should not consume this product since it may pose a severe risk to their well being. Symptoms of milk allergy in adults may cause vomiting, gastric diseases, stomach pain, skin rashes etc.
As an Olympia personal injury lawyer I hope that no unaware and allergic consumer will be the victim of the consequences of the ingesting of this recalled item.
Personal injury lawyers understand that many fatal cases could have been avoided throughout the past years if companies were responsible enough to understand how important it is to declare all ingredients present in any food products. Consumers depend on responsible companies to make sure that they’re safe when consuming their products.
The news and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have reported that Chevrolet has issued a recall for at least 1,798 2012 GMC Savana van vehicles.

As a Tacoma car accident lawyer I understand that problems with the air bags in any car can make a minor accident turn into a life-threatening situation for drivers and passengers. All owners will hopefully be able to get their vehicles fixed in a timely manner.

In a press release, ADT Security Services, in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced the voluntary recall of their CO 1224T Carbon Monoxide detectors due to their failure to alert consumers of their need to change the batteries.
This recall was initiated after it was found that the CO detectors failed to generate an alarm sound in the home alarm panel to inform consumers, and ADT’s alarm-monitoring center that the batteries were in need of replacement. Some of the units were wired improperly to ADT security system, which resulted in the failure of the alarm sounding in the home panel. The CPSC also reported that the CO detectors fail to signal the ADT alarm-monitoring center at the end of the unit’s useful life. This recall only affects the hard-wired detectors with the model number CO 1224T. The model number is located behind the front cover of the device.
Consumers are being urged by both the CPSC and ADT to contact the company for a free inspection of the recalled units.

In a press statement, Harley-Davidson, in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced the recall of certain Touring, CVO Touring and Trike motorcycles from model years 2009 through 2012 due to faulty rear brake lights and the possibility of a brake fluid leak that could pose a risk to the rider.
This recall affects roughly 251,000 motorcycles from the model years between 2009 and 2012. It was initiated based off of the discovery that the rear brake light switch might be exposed to excessive heat from the exhaust system. This can result in either the switch not activating the brake lamp when the brakes are applied, or activating the lamp when the braking system is inactive. This exposure to excessive heat from the exhaust system may also result in a leak of brake fluid at the brake light switch, which can affect the performance of the rear brake and increase the risk of an accident. The recalled Harley-Davidsons were manufactured between 6 June 2008 and 16 September 2011.
The company is planning to initiate this safety recall at the end of October and will replace the defect parts at their dealerships for free. No injuries have been reported as a result of this recall.
As a Bellevue motorcycle accident lawyer, I’ve seen recalls of this nature in the past and understand the serious effects they can have consumers.
