May Recall Round-Up

SUV Safety

The goal is to keep you safe on the road. That's why auto makers are recalling millions of vehicles in the name of safety. We begin in the back seat of GM trucks and SUVs, where the seat belts may malfunction because of difficulty in positioning the belt across a passenger's hips. A million and a half vehicles are recalled, including the 2003 to 2005 Chevy Suburban, Tahoe, Hummer H-2, Escalade, Silverado and Sierra. The GMC Yukon and Yukon XL are also included.

300,000 GMC trucks and SUVs are recalled because of a problem with the turn signal. Flipping on the turn signal may actually cause the front or back lights to flash, looking like a hazard. Recalled vehicles include the 2003 and 2004 Chevy Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender, Oldsmobile Bravada and the 2004 Buick Rainer.

If you're having problems steering your Toyota, there's a reason why. Toyota is recalling 750, 000 trucks and SUVs because of a front suspension problem. The recall includes 2001 through 2004 Tacomas, 2001 and 2002 Four-runners and 2002 through 2004 Toyota Tundras and Sequoias.

Saws

Safety is essential when using sharp blades. That's why Bosch is recalling its circular saws, sold at Home Depot, Lowe's, Menards and other hardware distributors nationwide from February 2004 through April 2005. The lower blade guard can malfunction creating a risk of injury as severe as amputation. Recalled models include Bosch CS-10, CS-20 and CS-20-XC. Consumers should stop using the saws and contact Robert Bosch Tool Corp. to receive a repair kit. Call 1-800-856-9683 or ( click here ).

Pogo Sticks

Now we're changing he focus and moving on to products that affect your children. Fisher-Price is recalling its "Grow to Pro" pogo sticks. Faulty pin jams can cause the sticks to break apart. The pogo sticks were sold nationwide from January 2002 through August 2004 for $25 to $35. Consumers should call Fisher Price for a free replacement pogo stick. Call 1-800-991-2444 or ( click here ).

Push Toys

Fisher Price is also recalling its Lil Wagster Dragster push toys. Kids have been injured when their chins, jaws and teeth have been lodged in handle of the toy. The toy was sold at stores nationwide for about $13 from December 2002 through February 2005. Call 1-800-991-2444 or ( click here ).
