Baby monitors recalled after two deaths

Ohio parents with a baby in their home should be aware of a recall of 600,000 baby monitors by Angelcare.

Recalled model numbers include AC201, AC1100, AC300, AC601, AC401 and 4925.

60,000 Chevy Malibu cars recalled

On Nov. 15, General Motors issued a recall that affected 60,000 of its Chevy Malibu mid-sized automobiles, including 44,000 2014-model-year vehicles. GM said that its dealers would fix the issues free of charge and that the firm wasn't aware of any accidents that had occurred because of the issue. More than 42,000 of the Malibus were sold in the U.S., but reports did not specify how many of these were on the road in Ohio.

Weight loss supplement recalled in wake of 56 hepatitis cases

The supplement is believed to be the cause of the disease in 44 patients connected to the outbreak in Hawaii, as well as additional patients in 12 other states just since October.

Are Ohio consumers at risk of salad-kit Listeria?

Shortly thereafter, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that Taylor Foods, the manufacturer of the salad kits, recalled no less than 5,000 pounds of the affected products.
