Ford is recalling about 7,600 Escape SUVs to fix coolant leaks that can cause fires. The recall affects 2013 Escapes with 1.6-liter four-cylinder engines. Plugs that fill holes in the engine may not have been put in properly and can fall out. Coolant can leak and cause the engines to overheat. Ford said one leak caused a fire at a dealer when coolant spilled onto hot engine parts. The company will add a sealant and put a secondary cover over the plugs at no cost.
About 16,400 Patio Bistro Sets imported by L G Sourcing Inc. of North Wilkesboro, N.C., and made by Midas Lin Company Ltd. of China; sold at Lowe’s stores nationwide August 2011-February 2012.
The folding chairs were sold in three-piece patio bistro sets. Each set contains two folding chairs and a folding table. The chairs have a black steel frame and dark stained wooden seats and backs. “Garden Treasures” is printed on the cover of the instruction manual sold with the patio bistro sets.
When the chair support bar is not fully engaged, the chair poses a fall hazard to a consumer who sits in the partially engaged chair. The firm has received 13 reports of consumers who fell from partially opened chairs, resulting in reports of back injuries, contusions and scrapes.
