2013 Ford Edge Door Latch Recall

In 2013, Ford Edge door latches were recalled due to a problem with the latching mechanism. The recall affected over half a million vehicles. Ford issued a recall for the affected vehicles and offered a free repair.

The recall was issued after reports of doors opening unexpectedly while driving. In some cases, the doors opened while the vehicle was in motion. This posed a serious safety hazard as occupants could be ejected from the vehicle.

Ford advised owners of affected vehicles to take their car to a dealer for the free repair. The dealer would replace the door latch with an updated part.

Despite the recall, some owners of affected vehicles reported that they were unable to get the free repair. They were told that the parts were not available or that the repair would not be covered under warranty.

If you own an affected vehicle, you should contact Ford to see if you are eligible for the free repair.

What Was The Reason For The Recall?

In 2012, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of more than 2.4 million Samsung washing machines. The recall was issued after reports of the washing machines becoming unstable during use, resulting in injuries and property damage.

The recall affected several models of Samsung washing machines, including the Top Load Washer,Model WA40J3000AW/A2; the Top Load Washer, Model WA45H7000AP/A2; and the Top Load Washer, Model WA45H7000AW/A2.

Samsung issued the recall after receiving reports of 730 incidents, including nine reports of injuries. The CPSC said that the washing machines can vibrate excessively and cause the top to detach from the washing machine.

In one incident, a consumer reported that the washing machine door flew off and hit her in the head, causing a concussion. Another consumer reported that the washing machine vibrated so violently that it broke a concrete floor.

If you have a recalled washing machine, you should contact Samsung for a free repair.

How Many Vehicles Were Affected By The Recall?

On February 14, Toyota issued a recall for vehicles equipped with certain airbag inflators. The recall affected approximately 4.7 million vehicles in the United States. On May 4, Toyota announced an expansion of the recall to include an additional 2.3 million vehicles. The recall now covers a total of 7 million vehicles in the United States.

When Did The Recall Occur?

In the United States, a food recall is the most serious type of recall issued by the FDA. A food recall occurs when there is a reasonable probability that the food is contaminated with a substance that may cause serious or life-threatening illnesses or death.

In 2018, there were several large food recalls, including Romaine lettuce contaminated with E. coli, frozen chicken products contaminated with salmonella, and cereal contaminated with weevils.

If you have any food in your home that has been recalled, you should throw it away immediately and wash any surfaces that it may have come into contact with. You should also check your pantry and fridge for any other food products that may have been recalled.

If you believe you may have consumed a recalled food product, you should contact your doctor immediately. Symptoms of foodborne illness can include vomiting, diarrhea, and fever.
