Recall of Cottonelle wipes. Cottonelle disposable wipes, in high demand amid the coronavirus pandemic due to a shortage of toilet paper, are being recalled due to the possible presence of bacteria.

The manufacturer, Kimberly-Clark, is recalling specific batches that have been sold nationwide because they could be contaminated with various types of bacteria that can cause infections.

“At this time there have been few and non-serious complaints, such as minimal irritation and infection, reported due to the use of the affected wipes,” Kimberly-Clark said.

Those with weak immune systems or who have serious pre-existing conditions are at particular risk of infection, he added.

The wipes are widely sold in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. Consumers can verify that they have purchased the recalled product by looking for the specific lot numbers on the bottom of the package and verifying them. here.

Ford recall thousands of trucks that many Hispanics drive

Ford is calling for repairs to more than 700,000 vehicles in North America, from heavily Hispanic-driven pickup trucks to sports sedans, because rearview cameras can show distorted images or suddenly go dark.

Poor electrical connection can cause the backup camera to intermittently show a blank or distorted image, increasing the risk of a crash.

Following news of two new Ford recalls for broken Mustang brake pedals and poor welds on the F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks, Ford on Wednesday announced a third recall affecting nearly every new vehicle it sells today.

The call covers most of the 2020 models of Ford F-series trucks, such as the Ford F-150, as well as the 2020 models of the Explorer, Mustang, Transit, Expedition, Escape, Ranger and Edge vehicles.

The Lincoln Nautilus and the Corsair were also included. F-Series trucks are America’s best-selling vehicles.

All vehicles, except the Ecosport, are included in this recall.

The recall affects 620,246 vehicles in the United States, 76,566 in Canada and 4,302 in Mexico.

The company said in documents released Wednesday by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that a poor electrical connection is causing the problem.

The problem caught Ford’s attention in May, when vehicle assembly plants closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a document submitted to US safety regulators after vehicle production resumed, Defective cameras were removed from stock and new cameras were brought into production, according to the NHTSA document.

Magna Electronics, a unit of Canadian automobile supplier Magna International Inc., is the parts manufacturer listed in the NHTSA document.

Ford said it does not know of crashes or injuries caused by the failure.

Dealers will replace the backup camera at no cost to owners. The recall is expected to begin on November 7.

CNET explains that none of the affected cars have sufficient electrical conductivity for the internal camera circuit board, which can result in completely blank backup cameras or flickering images where the screen is supposed to provide a constant image when it is. backwards.

Backup cameras are federally mandated in the US And because of this problem, Ford vehicles do not meet federal motor vehicle safety standards.

The good news is that backup cameras aren’t everything, and we survived decades without them. Regardless, relying solely on a backup camera when in reverse is never a great idea, but they definitely help, especially on massive rigs like the F-150 or Expedition.

Owners of affected vehicles will need to take their car to a Ford or Lincoln dealer, where a technician will install a new backup camera at no cost. If you own one of the listed 2020 Ford vehicles, watch for a notice in the mail beginning November 7.
