Mack Trucks Recalls LEU and MRU Models

There appears to be a recall on certain models of Mack Trucks, according to multiple news agencies.

According to the official reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, all models 2010, 2011 and 2012 of the LEU and MRU trucks are being recalled. This specific recall was necessary due to an issue with the front suspension of these recalled vehicle models.

The company has announced that the circuit protection on the starter could be negated by the fact that the alternator ground cable runs directly to it. The possible repercussion of this problem could be a car fire.

Any personal injury lawyer in our Seattle Lawyers firm can tell you that recalls like this can lead to a series of severe risks to drivers and passengers alike. I’m very happy Mack Trucks decided to issue this recall quickly putting the safety of drivers ahead of profits.

Whenever you’re involved in an accident that was caused by a recalled or faulty truck, you may like to consult a personal injury attorney in your city who will be able to assess your case quickly.

Toasters Recalled by CPSC Because of Fire Hazard

In a press release, Hamilton Beach Brands Inc, in conjunction with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced that it has voluntarily recalled its classic chrome 2-slice toaster. The recall effects about 14,000 products in the 22602 toaster model series. The company stated that the toaster heats and energizes even with the lever pushed up and in the off position, which can result in a fire hazard and potentially cause serious burn injuries to consumers. There have been reports by five consumers that the toasters energize upon first plugging in, however no injuries have been reported so far. The toasters are sold in mass retail and department stores. Consumers with this model are being instructed to contact Hamilton Beach immediately for further instructions.

As a Seattle personal injury attorney, I’ve witnessed this type of safety recall many times over the coarse of my career and I understand the challenges that manufacturers have to deal with when attempting to product quality products for their customers. That said, Ive also seen the devastating injuries that can result from the use of a defective product. If you’ve been injured through the normal use of a defective product, speak with a personal injury lawyer in your area to discuss your rights as a consumer.
