Recall alert: Nissan, baked beans and instant coffee
Nissan North America has issued a recall for 515,394 cars over an issue with the airbags. The automaker reports that the driver’s side, front airbag could deploy with so much force in the event of an accident that the inflator could rupture, sending metal fragments flying toward the people inside and seriously injuring them.
The defect mainly affects cars that were exposed to humidity and high temperatures during long periods of time.
The 2007-2011 Versa sedan and 2007-2012 Versa hatchback cars are affected by this recall. Nissan will notify owners and drivers will need to take the cars in for a free repair once the replacement parts are ready. An interim notice will be sent to drivers starting in September and a second letter will be sent to drivers once the repair parts are ready.
Owners with questions can contact the automaker at 800-647-7261.
Meanwhile, Bush Brothers & Co. has issued a voluntary recall for some of its baked beans that might have not been packaged properly.
The company reports that the side seams on the cans might not have been sealed correctly, which can cause the cans to leak or air to get inside. That means bacteria can grow in the food.
The recall covers the 28-ounce cans of the following beans:
-- Bush’s Best Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans with UPC of 0 39400 01977 0 and lot codes 6097S GF and 6097P GF and a best by date of June 2019.
-- Bush’s Best Country Style Baked Beans with UPC of 0 39400 01974 9 and lot codes 6077S RR, 6077P RR, 6087S RR, 6087P RR and a best by date of June 2019.
-- Bush’s Best Original Baked Beans with UPC of 0 39400 01614 4 and lot codes 6057S LC and 6057P LC and a best by date of 2019.
The food was distributed to retail stores nationwide. No one has reported getting sick but customers are asked to either throw the baked beans out or return them to the store for a refund.
Consumers with questions can contact the company at 800-590-3797.
Finally, a Texas-based coffee company has issued a voluntary recall for some of its instant coffee because it has an ingredient mixed in that is similar to what’s used in erectile dysfunction drugs.
It’s called desmethyl carbodenafil and it was detected by the Food and Drug Administration in the New Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee.
The ingredient was not listed on the coffee’s label and could interact negatively with some prescription drugs.
The coffee also has undeclared milk in it.
New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee is used as a male enhancement and is packaged in red 13 -gram packs, UPC 557205060083 in a box and each box contains 25 packets. Bestherbs Coffee LLC distributed the product from July 2014 through June 2016.
