Polaris Off-Road Vehicles
Highly popular in Florida (and across the nation, for that matter), Polaris
RZR vehicles are a fun way to explore the outdoors. Due to a dangerous
safety defect, however, 133,000 of these vehicles are being recalled due
to a fire risk. To date, Polaris has received more than 160 reports of
RZR’s catching fire. At least 19 have been injured so far due to
the defect, and it has claimed the life of a 15-year-old passenger.
Affected Models: 2013-2016 RZR 900 and RZR 1000
If You Have One: Contact your local Polaris dealer immediately for a free repair.
Nice! Peach Slices & Nice! Mixed Fruit
Sliced peaches are one of life’s simple pleasures, but Milky Way
has voluntary recalled several variations of their Nice! brand peach slices
and mixed fruit jars due to the potential for glass in the fruit. Only
one complaint was filed, but the company has chosen to play it safe –
something we commend them for.
- Item # 80894 Nice! Brand Peach Slices in Light Syrup 8oz, Lot #3700/01069
- Item # 80896 Nice! Brand Mixed Fruit in Light Syrup 8oz, Lot #3700/01069
If You Have One: Return it to the place of purchase for refund or replacement.
Drywall Lifts From YTL International
Anyone involved in the construction industry is undoubtedly familiar with
drywall lifts, and YTL remains a popular brand. The company is now recalling
roughly 17,000 lifts sold through Lowe’s, Orgill, and Menards, as
they can potentially fail, causing the drywall to fall onto the operator
of the lift.
Affected Products: YTL brand drywall lifts, which feature a label stating “PERFORMANCE
BUILT,” “MUD BOSS” or “150 LB. DRYWALL PANEL HOIST.”
If You Have One: Call YTL International toll-free at 888-723-6534 , or online at
