Serious Injury Risk- Airbag Recall

Airbag Recall- Serious injury or even death may occur- Please take action immediately if your vehicle is on the airbag recall list. 4 fatalities and over 100 injuries have been linked to the defective airbags. The defective airbags may explode sending metal shards throughout the vehicle. The recall includes 8 million vehicles including certain models manufactured by Toyota, BMW, Subaru, General Motors, Mitsubishi, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda and Nissan manufactured from 2000- 2011 year models. The current recall covers only the U.S region considered the most humid Florida is included. NHTSA believes the recall should be expanded. Takata the Japanese manufacturer does not want to expand the recall. Currently Takata is struggling to come up with enough airbags to cover the vehicles in the states that have already been recalled.
NHSTA has updated the list and corrected a few errors in the list.
Vehicle owners can call the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration Hotline- 1-888-327-4236

Dog Bite Injuries

Karin Carter, suffered through a serious dog attack that dramatically changed her life. Greeted by her son's four pit bulls she reached down to pet the dogs, she was familiar with all of the dogs. One of the dogs turned on her, the others joined in. Her screams brought help. "They were never aggressive towards any of us," according to Mrs. Carter. Mrs. Carter lost her leg and suffered what she describes as post-traumatic stress as a result of the accident. The dog bites we encounter most often are a neighbor's dog, a friend's dog or a relative's dog. We all love our dogs and it is difficult to believe the animal that greets us with a wagging tale and licks our hands could turn on us or a family member. Dogs play an important role in our life and studies show we are happier and healthier because of their friendship. A Dog Prevention brochure provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics is available at the link below:
