February 2021 Recalls
Nissan North America, Inc. is recalling roughly 267,276 units due to brake defects. Certain 2013-2015 Nissan Pathfinder vehicles have been found to have faulty brake light switches. These brake light switches can get stuck in the “ON” position, illuminating the brake lights even when the brakes are not being used. In addition, this may allow for the driver to shift out of the “Park” position without pressing the brake pedal.
A safety hazard is resulting in the recall of DeWALT® cordless kerosene forced-air heaters. These heaters can turn on unexpectedly while in standby mode if the temperature in the room falls below the thermostat set point. This poses a fire risk and carbon monoxide poisoning hazards. These units were sold at Lowe’s stores and farm and supply stores nationwide from June 2020 until November 2020. The affected units include model number DXH90CFAK, serial numbers between 340902-20001001 and 340902-20004000 as well as the model number DXH90CFAKM, serial numbers between 340901-20001001 through 340901-2001500. Consumers have been instructed to immediately cease the use of the product and to contact Enerco for a free replacement corded heater.
