Honda recalls nearly a million vehicles

Honda Motor Co. is voluntarily recalling 962,000 Honda Fits, CR-Vs, and City models to repair software and electrical defects with the power windows and computer equipment. Honda Fits made between October 2005 and 2009 are involved in the recall. The car company has stated that no reports of injuries or accidents have been caused due to the defect.

Honda says there could be a chance of fire after a design flaw could cause windshield wiper cleaner residue to accumulate inside the door, which could cause the power window switch’s electrical contact to degrade. Earlier this year, Honda recalled 2.3 million vehicles for transmission problems, including the hybrid CR-Z.

Public Citizen demands recall of surgical mesh

The watchdog group, Public Citizen, has strongly urged the US Food & Drug Administration to recall surgical mesh used in patients with pelvic organ prolapse. The consumer advocacy group argues that the mesh product, made by Minneapolis-based Coloplast and American Medical Systems Inc., exposes women to serious risks and possibly permanent damage.

Nearly 300,000 women a year undergo surgery where surgical mesh is used. Public Citizen says they believe at least 75,000 people have potentially dangerous mesh surgically implanted in their bodies. The FDA had issued a warning for the product last month, but the watchdog group wants the FDA to issue a full recall.

Bunk beds recalled for safety reasons

Bunk beds that were manufactured by Dorel Asia SRL were recalled last week due to the beds posing serious safety concerns. The side rails of the 466, 700 bunk beds that were recalled were found to split, causing the entire bed to collapse.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the recall after 23 people reported that the beds broke while they were sleeping in them. The people reported suffering bruises and scrapes because of the beds.

The beds were sold at Kmarts and Targets across the country from 2004 through 2009. Anyone who has the bed has been advised to contact Dorel Asia SRL for a kit to repair the beds.
