Sandwiches that may possibly contain adulterated hummus recalled by 7-Eleven

A batch of 7-Eleven sandwiches made available in 16 states, including Iowa, are being recalled due to fears that the Sabra hummus products they contain may be contaminated by listeria bacteria, a report of Food Safety News reported on November 24.

Reports said the 7-Eleven chicken-flavored sandwiches with October 17 to November 21 “best buy” dates were taken out of store shelves days after Sabra Dipping Co. LLC issued a recall to their hummus products that may have been adulterated with listeria. The recalled hummus was reportedly identified to be one of the ingredients used in the sandwiches, recall documents revealed. According to federal health authorities, consumers who have immune system problems, children, and the elderly may suffer serious infection if they accidentally consume food contaminated with listeria.

Thousands of Mazda vehicles in the US with fire risks recalled

Approximately 70,000 Mazda vehicles of previous years are being recalled in the U.S. by their manufacturer, due to concerns that they could catch fire, an article of Reuters stated on November 15.

Information coming from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed that the 2004-2008 models of RX-8 sports cars may catch fire if fuel leaks in the sealing rings of the fuel pump. In a statement, the NHTSA explained that heat exposure from the exhaust pipe or engine could cause the “fuel pump sealing rings” in the vehicles to deteriorate. Though Mazda and the NHTSA have not received any complaints of accidents or injuries involving the recalled vehicles, Mazda is expected to address the problem by offering a free replacement of the pump sealing ring in the vehicles.

When vehicles malfunction during use, consumers are at high risk of suffering serious injuries.

Responsibility of addressing Takata recall is on automakers

U.S. auto safety regulators recently said it is the responsibility of automakers to fully address all the vehicles that may have hazardous Takata airbags, a report of Fortune stated on November 3.

Chief of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) worries the efforts of car manufacturers to repair their vehicles that might still have defective airbags are insufficient. Millions of vehicles in the U.S. are under recall because they have Takata airbags that could explode during deployment and release pieces of metal from a broken inflator. The airbag defect was linked to dozens of deaths and injuries in the U.S. and other countries. Takata faced pressure from the NHTSA to issue the recall.
