Recall alerts for Ford, IKEA, RH, Whalen, Safavieh and Home Depot

Ford, IKEA, RH, Whalen, Safavieh and Home Depot announced product recalls.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSD) issued an important recall remedy notice:

Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding COVID-19, some of the remedies identified in recall press releases may not be available at this time. Consumers should check with recalling firms for further details.

It is important to remember that CPSC and recalling firms urge consumers not to use recalled products.

Ford

Ford issued a recall for nearly 250,000 vehicles in the U.S. for a door latch issue – the latch can degrade in high temperatures and thus will not be secured when the door is closed. Three sedans are affected: the Ford Fiesta and Fusion and the Lincoln MKZ. To fix the problem, dealers will replace the door latch with one that doesn’t degrade in high temperatures. Parties will be alerted to the recall beginning May 4. It’s suggested that owners visit the NHTSA recall site to see if their vehicle is involved.
