SunSetter’s Motorized Vinyl Awnings Recalled, One Death Reported 

A recall has been issued on vinyl covers for SunSetter Motorized Awnings due to fall and impact hazards. “If a powered awning is activated while the cover is secured with bungee tie-downs, when the cover is removed, the awning can open unexpectedly with enough force to strike a consumer standing in the awning’s path, causing them to fall and suffer death or serious injury,” states the recall. One death has been reported in connection to the recall. An additional 13 incidents have been reported, including six injuries.

Forest River Recalls Flagstaff & Cherokee Arctic Wolf Recreational Trailers

1,809 model year 2019 and 2020 recreational trailers have been recalled. The pin boxes in the MORyde Orbital or the You Turn Rubber Box Wedge Kits were equipped with incorrect bolts. The shorter bolts may allow the rotating pin box to rotate in two places, increasing the risk of crash. Forest River will notify owners and dealers will replace the bolts free of charge.

Pfizer Recalls RELPAX Tablets

Two lots of REPLAX tablets have been recalled because they may not meet in-house microbiological specs for the potential presence of Genus Pseudomonas and Burkholderia.
