Fiat Chrysler, SPAM canned meat and strollers recalled
As many people prepare to hit the road during Memorial Day weekend, Fiat Chrysler is recalling 4.8 million vehicles over an issue that could prevent drivers from turning off cruise control.
The issue can be triggered when the car accelerates while on cruise control, announced the company.
One incident related to the malfunction has been reported, but no injuries have been reported.
FCA is asking owners of the recalled vehicles to bring them into dealerships for a no-cost software update that can prevent the short circuit. In the meantime, the company is advising drivers of the involved vehicles to avoid using cruise control.
The models covered under the recall include:
• 2015-17 Chrysler 200 sedan
• 2014-18 Chrysler 300 sedan
• 2014-18 Dodge Charger sedan
• 2014-18 Dodge Durango SUV
• 2014-18 Dodge Journey crossover
• 2014-18 Jeep Cherokee SUV
• 2014-18 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV
• 2014-18 Ram 2500 pickup
• 2014-18 Ram 3500 cab chassis
• 2014-18 Ram 3500 pickup
• 2014-18 Ram 4500/5500 cab chassis
• 2014-19 Ram 1500 pickup
• 2015-18 Dodge Challenger coupe
• 2017-18 Chrysler Pacifica minivan
• 2018 Jeep Wrangler
The canned meat, SPAM, is being pulled off the shelves because it could possibly be contaminated with metal.
The canned pork and chicken products in question were produced from February 8 through February 10 of 2018, according to the USDA website.
Four complaints have been filed stating the metal objects were found in the canned goods.
Jané Muum strollers is recalling about 800 of its strollers due to a violation of the federal Stroller and Carriage safety standard leading to entrapment and strangulation hazard, announced the company Thursday.
The child’s head could become trapped by the armrest due to an opening between the armrest and the seat bottom, according to Jané Muum.
The stroller was sold at Albee Baby, Baby World, Kidsland, Toys R US, Dainty Baby, USA Baby stores and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and other websites from July 2016 through August 2017 for between $300 and $450.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Jané for a free repair. The repair consists of a free replacement armrest. Consumers can continue using the recalled strollers if they remove the armrest and harness the child properly until they receive the replacement armrest.
