Recall Alert: Gerber, BMW and SoyNut Butter
BMW North America has issued a recall for more than 134,000 cars over an issue with the power train. The recall affects at least eight models of cars.
The automaker reports that water and debris can get into the front driveshaft’s universal joint. That can cause excessive wear on the joint, which can cause it to stop working.
The following models are affected by the recall:
-- 2011-2013 X5 xDrive35i
-- 2011-2013 X5 xDrive50i
-- 2011-2013 X5 M
-- 2011-2013 X5 xDrive35d
-- 2011-2014 X6 xDrive35i
-- 2011-2014 X6 xDrive50i
-- 2011-2014 X6M vehicles
-- 2011 x6 ActiveHybrid
BMW will notify owners about the defect and replace the front driveshaft free of charge starting on April 24. Customers with questions can contact BMW at 888-327-4236.
Meanwhile, Gerber Products Co. has issued a recall for its Cheese Ravioli Gerber Pasta Pick-up due to mislabeling. The company reports that egg was listed in the ingredients but it was not added into the “Contains” section on the label, which could cause some confusion for parents.
Children with egg allergies could experience an allergic reaction if they eat the raviolis. There have been no reports of illnesses but Gerber is asking parents who have children with egg allergies to either throw the food out or return it to the store for a refund.
Gerber is in the process of updating the food packaging labels to make it easier for parents to identify food that contain allergens like milk, eggs and wheat.
Parents with questions can contact Gerber at 800-510-7494.
Finally, the SoyNut Butter Co. has expanded its recall of I.M. Healthy Brand SoyNut Butter and granola products.
