Watch those Samsung washers:
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning consumers that Samsung high-efficiency top-loading washing machines may become dislodged during the spin cycle, and Consumer Reports has suspended its "recommended" status for the machines.

The actions follow ConsumerAffairs' Sept. 14 report recounting homeowners' problems with the machines, which have sparked more than 1,300 negative reviews in recent years.
...
Since our Sept. 14 report, ConsumerAffairs has heard from 18 additional consumers who said their machines have basically shaken apart and, in some cases, flooded their homes or even started fires. Some describe the shaking as an "explosion."
...
In a statement Wednesday, the CPSC said it was "actively and cooperatively working with Samsung to address safety issues related to certain top-load washing machines made between March 2011 and April 2016." Model numbers and serial numbers of the affected machines were not made available.

The agency said it is advising consumers to use only the delicate cycle when washing bedding or water-resistant and bulky items. "The lower spin speed in the delicate cycle lessens the risk of impact injuries or property damage due to the washing machine becoming dislodged," CPSC said.

Oops
Southwest Airlines flight 994 from Louisville to Baltimore was evacuated this morning [Oct 5 -Isg]while still at the gate because of a smoking Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. All passengers and crew exited the plane via the main cabin door and no injuries were reported, a Southwest Airlines spokesperson told The Verge.

More worrisome is the fact that the phone in question was a replacement Galaxy Note 7, one that was deemed to be safe by Samsung. The Verge spoke to Brian Green, owner of the Note 7, on the phone earlier today and he confirmed that he had picked up the new phone at an AT&T store on September 21st. A photograph of the box shows the black square symbol that indicates a replacement Note 7 and Green said it had a green battery icon.

Green said that he had powered down the phone as requested by the flight crew and put it in his pocket when it began smoking. He dropped it on the floor of the plane and a "thick grey-green angry smoke" was pouring out of the device. Green’s colleague went back onto the plane to retrieve some personal belongings and said that the phone had burned through the carpet and scorched the subfloor of the plane.

He said the phone was at around 80 percent of battery capacity when the incident occurred and that he only used a wireless charger since receiving the device.

Running the phone's IMEI (blurred for privacy reasons) through Samsung's recall eligibility checker returns a "Great News!" message saying that Green's Galaxy Note 7 is not affected by the recall.

Hey, Jude ... CLEAR!
Following deaths and injuries worldwide, Minnesota-based heart device maker St. Jude Medical announced Tuesday that nearly 350,000 of its defibrillators implanted in patients may be prone to short-circuiting in a way that causes the device to fail unexpectedly.

Two deaths have been associated with situations where the devices failed to send lifesaving shocks to the heart, including one death in the U.S. In addition, 10 people have fainted and 37 more have reported dizziness after their defibrillators failed to keep their hearts beating in proper rhythm.

"While it is a rare occurrence (0.21 percent), we want to ensure we are providing the information physicians need to best care for their patients," a St. Jude spokeswoman said in an e-mail regarding the rate of device failures. "We have asked physicians to contact their patients with information about this advisory. Device replacement is not recommended unless the physician determines otherwise."

Just hours before a Food and Drug Administration alert on the failures was published Tuesday morning, St. Jude announced that it had detected the potential for premature battery depletion in a wide swath of its implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds).

The at-risk models include various models of: Fortify, Fortify Assura, Quadra Assura, Quadra Assura MP, Unify, Unify Assura, and Unify Quadra devices. The defect has only been detected in devices made before May 2015.
...
St. Jude defibrillators use lithium batteries, which is where the problem is.

During charging, the lithium material can form "clusters" inside the device that may cause a short circuit and lead to battery depletion, depending on the location of the cluster deposit. Battery depletion can happen in as little as one day after a low-battery alert, if a short circuit occurs.
...
So far, 841 of the 398,740 devices sold worldwide have been confirmed to have premature battery depletion "in association with" lithium cluster formation, including 549 in the U.S. Forty-six of the devices had visible electrical shorting from the clusters.

Roughly 349,850 of the devices remain implanted in patients worldwide today and are at risk.

At this point, "prophylactic" replacements are not being recommended, as the risks of complications from replacement surgery are thought to be greater than the risk of premature battery failure. The FDA said most patients will not require a prophylactic replacement.

But devices should be checked and replaced immediately if a battery warning is detected. Such warnings are supposed to trigger a vibratory alert in the device that the patient can feel. Based on the circumstances, St. Jude may cover the cost of a replacement device, if one is needed, the St. Jude alert says.

Good news for Apple!
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS) scrapped its flagship Galaxy Note 7 smartphone on Tuesday less than two months after its launch, dealing a huge blow to its reputation and outlook after failing to resolve safety concerns.

Samsung announced the recall of 2.5 million Note 7s in early September following numerous reports of the phones catching fire and on Tuesday it finally pulled the plug on the $882 device in what could be one of the costliest product safety failures in tech history.

The decision to scrap the Note 7 came after fresh reports of fires in replacement devices prompted new warnings from regulators, phone carriers and airlines.

"(We) have decided to halt production and sales of the Galaxy Note 7 in order to consider our consumers' safety first and foremost," the South Korean firm said in a filing to the Seoul stock exchange.

Samsung said earlier it asked all global carriers to stop sales of the Note 7s and the exchange of original devices for replacements, while it worked with regulators to investigate the problem. The company is offering to exchange Note 7s for other products or refund them.

Probably. My take was influenced by having just read an article about the ongoing Apple vs Samsung patent lawsuit. I presume that Apple, being evil, will be gloating over Samsung's misfortune. :)

Prius
Parking brake failure isn't the most dangerous problem, but any potential rollaway situation carries serious concern. That's why Toyota is recalling nearly 100,000 vehicles in the US to deal with a parking brake that may fail at random.

The recall spans 92,000 US examples of the 2016 and 2017 Toyota Prius hybrid. An additional 210,000 vehicles have been recalled in Japan, as well as a handful of Priuses in Europe, Australia and elsewhere. The cars in question were produced between August 2015 and October 2016.

Toyota warns there is a chance that the cars' parking brake could stop working. If that happens, a vehicle left in any gear other than Park might roll away, which could cause vehicle damage or, worse, human injury. Toyota was not clear on how the parking brake failure may come about.

Toyota's fix for this issue is surprisingly simple. Dealerships will add clips to the top of the emergency brake cable's dust boot, which the automaker claims will prevent the cable from being rendered inoperative. Recall notices will be mailed to customers starting in November.

Hyundai Sonata
Hyundai launched a recall for 62,811 units of the Sonata after discovering that the mid-size car's panoramic sunroof could fly off in traffic and careen into other vehicles.

The Korean automaker said it was not aware of any crashes or injuries that have occurred because of the defect.

But the company has received multiple reports of sunroofs detaching, according to a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The voluntary recall covers 2015 and 2016 Sonata sedans assembled at Hyundai's plant in Alabama from May 28, 2014, through March 18, 2016, and 2015 and 2016 Sonata hybrids made there from Dec. 8, 2014, through Aug. 18, 2015.

The automaker said the defect stems from a wind deflector positioned at the front of the sunroof to reduce noise. The part may not have been well attached.

Recall
A defective part may be causing Samsung’s top load machines to break apart. Multiple companies are suing Samsung over the defect.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), with the cooperation of Samsung, is recalling 2.8 million of Samsung’s top-loading washing machines in the wake of over 700 reports of exploding washing machines resulting in at least nine injuries. The recall covers 34 of Samsung’s top-loading models sold from March 2011 through November 2016.

CPSC Chairman Elliot Kaye told reporters, “We’re talking about … a very serious hazard of the top of these washing machines completely blowing off. It is a lot of reports.” Kaye added that the tops of the affected units weren’t “secured enough based on a design failure. And the top just completely blows off.”

Bumble Bee canned tuna recall

I ate a can the other day then found the recall. Uh oh. My 2 cans were just 2 months different and not the number.....but I tossed the 2nd can to be extra safe. No reason to die over $1.50 tuna.

Made me wonder why they put their name on the product if its not them packaging it or doing it every step of the way. Or not even inspecting it.

People...
Earlier this week, the public was once again reminded of Samsung’s defective flagship after a “prankster” decided to name their mobile Wi-Fi hotspot “Galaxy Note 7.” As Serenity Caldwell, the managing editor of iMore revealed on Twitter, the incident occurred on an unnamed flight this Tuesday. After arriving at an airport yesterday, Caldwell found out that her flight had been canceled following numerous delays. While moving in a crowd of understandably angry people, she overheard the plane crew talking about a canceled “9 AM flight.” Namely, the said plane was allegedly already mid-flight after an attendant realized that one of the passengers is using a “Galaxy Note 7” hotspot. This resulted in the flight being canceled, and it reportedly took two hours for the situation to be resolved. As it turns out, the said hotspot was named by someone with a poor sense of timing looking to make a joke.
...
Not surprisingly, Samsung decided to not comment on this report which has yet to be verified.

Can you help the dense understand this? I've read this four times and I still seem to gloss over how naming a mobile hot spot cancels a flight.

Galaxy Note 7s are banned on US flights due to the explosion hazard. Given that there's no way to effectively find out what joker named his hotspot that, they cancelled the flight.

CBS
The Houston Chronicle is reporting Texas-based ice cream maker Blue Bell wants federal regulators to lighten costly precautions in place since a deadly listeria outbreak and allow the company to return to more normal procedures that are followed by its competitors.

The newspaper, reviewing documents obtained under a federal open records request, says Blue Bell has been working for months with a laboratory to develop tests to meet federal Food and Drug Administration requirements, prevent future outbreaks and help Blue Bell improve its economics.

An attorney for Blue Bell, Joseph Levitt, has written to the FDA saying it’s time for the company “to transition to the industry norm.”

The Chronicle says Blue Bell is currently required to destroy any product even suspected of having listeria, even if it ultimately proves not to, costing the company millions of dollars -- and Blue Bell wants to only have to destroy product that does test positive.

Blue Bell had to shut its flagship Brenham creamery for several months after last year’s recall was linked to 10 listeria cases in four states, including three deaths in Kansas.

Twinkies
Confectionary giant Hostess announced a recall of certain boxes of Twinkies Tuesday. The company issued a voluntary recall of its Holiday White Peppermint Twinkies due to possible salmonella contamination.

The Chicago-based business that produced the candy coating on the Twinkies, Blommer Chocolate Company, revealed the product might contain milk powder contaminated with salmonella. However, so far, none of the Twinkies have tested positive for salmonella, and nobody has reported illness.

Takata
Takata Corp. has agreed to plead guilty to a single criminal charge and will pay $1 billion in fines and restitution for concealing a deadly defect in its air bag inflators.
...
Takata will pay a $25 million criminal fine, $125 million to individuals who were injured by the air bags and $850 million to automakers that purchased the inflators. The U.S. district court in Detroit has appointed attorney Kenneth Feinberg to distribute restitution payments.
...
Takata and three former employees were charged by federal prosecutors with concealing deadly defects in automotive air bag inflators. The inflators are linked to at least 16 deaths worldwide, 11 in the U.S.

A federal grand jury indicted the former employees — Shinichi Tanaka, Hideo Nakajima and Tsuneo Chikaraishi. Prosecutors also charged the company.

According to an indictment, unsealed Friday, as early as 2000 the trio of workers falsified and altered reports to hide from customers tests that showed the inflators could rupture or otherwise fail to meet specifications. They were charged with six counts of conspiracy and wire fraud, while the company faces one count of wire fraud.
...
Takata has been fined $70 million by U.S. safety regulators for delays in disclosing the inflator defect, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has warned that the company could face an additional $130 million penalty if it doesn't fulfill the terms of a consent order agreed to in November 2015.

Takata has agreed to recall all original equipment inflators that lack a chemical drying agent in phases by the end of 2018. So far, the recall affects vehicles going back to the 2000 model year.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7
On Sunday night, Samsung streamed an exhaustive 50-minute presentation, covering the findings from its battery fault investigation, and it started things off on the right note. The head of its mobile division, DJ Koh, said:

"First of all, I deeply apologize to all of our customers, carriers, retail, and distribution partners. [...] We believe that, as a first step to regain your trust, it is important to provide you with a thorough understanding of the cause behind the Galaxy Note 7 incidents and to implement a comprehensive plan to take preventative measures."
...
Samsung isn’t dodging responsibility and is openly accepting blame for its lapse in quality assurance (QA).
...
Not only was Samsung upfront about letting its customers and partners down, it also went into spectacular depth of detail in explaining the battery issues it had encountered. First came Samsung’s own findings, then three independent investigator firms all took turns presenting their own conclusions. To bolster its claim that it has taken this matter seriously, Samsung pointed out that it built a dedicated "large scale" facility purely to test the charge and discharge process of batteries inside its Note 7, and it has also committed more than 700 engineers to the task of diagnosing the flaws leading to the smartphone’s eventual recall.
...
The most likely explanation is one of sloppy QA on Samsung’s part. The auditors identify basic failures like missing or uneven insulation tape and charge level inconsistencies, while also pointing to thinner internal separators and the Note 7 battery’s higher energy density as contributing factors.

Ford recalls 52,000 F-250 pick-up trucks over park fault
Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 52,000 2017 Ford F-250 gasoline-powered 6.2-liter vehicles for unintended vehicle movement while in park. Customers are advised to use the parking brake at all times when shifting their vehicle into park to keep the vehicle stationary.

In the affected vehicles, a damaged park rod actuating plate might not achieve mechanical park within the automatic transmission after the driver moves the shift lever to park. If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement with the gear selector in park without warning, increasing the risk of injury or crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

Affected vehicles include certain 2017 Ford F-250 gasoline-powered 6.2-liter vehicles built at Kentucky Assembly Plant Oct. 9, 2015 to March 30, 2017.

The recall involves approximately 52,608 vehicles located in North America, including 48,421 in the United States and federalized territories, and 4,143 in Canada. The Ford reference number for this recall is 17C06.

Dealers will inspect and replace the park rod actuating plate as necessary at no cost to the customer.

Walmart has issued a recall on a packaged salad after Florida customers found a decomposing bat inside the box.

The two customers ate some of the Organic Marketside Spring Mix salad before the bat was found, officials said. They have been tested for rabies.

The company said customers who may have already purchased the pre-packaged greens, which are sold mainly in southern states, should discard them.

Walmart also said customers can request a full refund for the product.

The two people began eating the salad before they discovered the bat, which was found in a "deteriorated condition", according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The bat was sent to a CDC lab and tested for rabies.

"Both people report being in good health and neither has any signs of rabies," the CDC said in a statement.

The agency also advised anyone who may have already eaten one of the affected salads and found "animal material" to contact their local health department immediately.

But people "who have eaten the recalled salad and did not find animal material are not at risk and do not need to contact their health department", the CDC added.

The salads, which bear the production code G089B19, are exclusively sold at Walmart stores throughout the southeastern US.

The company said it worked quickly with officials to remove the entire batch of salads from store shelves, and only one line of its products had been affected.

"Fresh Express takes matters of food safety very seriously and rigorously complies with all food safety regulations including the proscribed Good Agricultural Practices," a company statement said.

Frito Lay
Frito-Lay is recalling two jalapeño-flavored potato chip products over fears of Salmonella contamination.

The voluntary recall of jalapeno flavored Lay's Kettle Cooked Potato Chips and jalapeño flavored Miss Vickie's Kettle Cooked potato chips is due to the potential presence of the bacteria in the seasoning, the company said.

The chips affected by the recall were distributed to retail stores and vending machines and have a "guaranteed fresh" date of July 4 or prior.

Packets of those chips contained in multipacks with a "use by" date of June 20 or prior printed on the multipack package are also being recalled. Other flavors in the multipacks are unaffected by the recall, Frito-Lay said.

In a statement posted on the FDA's website, Frito-Lay said one of its suppliers had recalled a seasoning blend that included potentially contaminated jalapeño powder.

While no Salmonella had been found in Frito-Lay's supply, the company said it was recalling the products "out of an abundance of caution."

Bombay Sapphire: Canada recalls gin over too strong alcohol content
Bottles of a popular gin have been recalled across Canada after a batch was found to contain nearly twice the amount of advertised alcohol.

Officials said the 1.14 litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin should have had 40% alcohol content by volume when the actual figure was 77%.

They said the problem had been traced back to the production line.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said no illnesses associated with the gin had been reported.

Drinks giant Bacardi, which distributes Bombay Sapphire, said the affected batch was believed to have only been sold in Canada.
Yet another example of overreaching government regulation preventing us from having good things, like two-for-one gin-and-tonics. :obscene-drinkingbuddies:

They'll be lucky to get much of that recall back now that folks know about it.

When you hide industrial waste by packaging it as food, the weight ratios can go a little squirrely. It's best not to ask too many questions.

Ram trucks
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced a recall of more than 1.25 million pickup trucks worldwide to fix a deadly airbag software error.

One death and two injuries were reported in two accidents as a result of the software error, which according to the Italian-American automaker, temporarily disables the rollover side curtain air bag and seat belt pretensioner during a rollover caused by underbody impact, the likes of which a car might experience after hitting debris or while off-roading.

The recall, announced Tuesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, affects 1.02 million Ram 1500 and 2500 pickup trucks from the 2013-16 model years as well as 2014-16 Ram 3500 pickups in the U.S. An additional 216,007 vehicles in Canada, 21,668 in Mexico and 21,530 outside the NAFTA region also have been recalled, according to FCA.

General Motors recalled 4 million cars in September last year for a similar issue, in which defective seat belts and faulty airbags failing to deploy due to a glitch in the car’s computer system led to one death. That recall affected GMC, Buick, Cadillac, and Chevrolet vehicles from the 2014-2017 model years.

Home heating pump recall

A fire hazard has prompted the recall of certain Carrier and Bryant brand heat pumps used for heating and cooling homes.

The recall involves more than 23,000 Carrier Greenspeed and Bryant Evolution extreme heat pumps sold at Sears stores and through HVAC dealers nationwide from June 2011 through August 2016 for between $12,000 and $18,000.

The capacitors in the fuse boards can stop working, causing the unit to overheat.

Carrier says it's received 41 overheating reports, but so far no injuries, fires or property damage have been reported.

The recall involves 2, 3, 4, and 5-ton size heat pump units sold under the Carrier Greenspeed and Bryant Evolution Extreme brand names. The units are used for cooling and heating homes.

The Carrier Greenspeed model numbers are:

25VNA024
25VNA036
25VNA048
25VNA060

The Bryant Evolution Extreme model numbers are:

280ANV024
280ANV036
280ANV048
280ANV060

The model number can be found on the unit nameplate (or rating plate) located on one side of the unit’s exterior. On the Bryant unit, there is a label on top of the unit that reads “Bryant Evolution System.”
