Millions of food processors with potentially hazardous blades recalled

To address the problem, Cuisinart will replace the defective food processor blades at no cost. Owners of the affected processors should not use the product while waiting for the blade replacement.

Thousands of potentially faulty Ducati motorcycles recalled in the US

At least 1,433 recent Ducati motorcycles in the U.S. are being recalled by the manufacturer due to a production error that may cause harm to riders during operation, an article of Motorcycle.com reported on October 7.

In the recall papers forwarded to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Ducati stated the rear wheel of the affected motorcycles may lose power during operation if the drive pulley of the primary belt malfunctions. Reports said the problem could happen due to an improperly tightened nut in the final drive pulley.

A North Carolina-based company recently issued a recall on the “Diamond of California” brand of macadamia nuts after a sample contained harmful Salmonella bacteria, an August 31 article of Food Safety News stated.
