Recall roundup

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - From cars, to strollers, to pot pies, there have been a number of recalls this week.

Toyota is recalling more than two million of its vehicles because of a possible problem with the gas pedals. The recall affects a number of 2009 and 2010 models including the Tundra, Avalon, Corolla and Rav-4. Toyota says the vehicles' pedals could become worn and get stuck.

Chrysler is recalling a lot of its 2009 and 2010 vehicles because they may have faulty brakes. Included in this recall are the 2010 Chrysler Sebring, the Dodge Avenger and Nitro, the Jeep Liberty, Commander, and Grand Cherokee. The 2009 and 2010 Ram trucks are also being recalled.

Next on the list, strollers manufactured by Graco. The company is recalling a million and a half of its strollers because of a flaw that could seriously injure children.

"Children can suffer fingertip amputations if they put their finger in the hinge of the canopy when it's being opened or closed," said Consumer Product Safety Commission chairman Inez Tenenbaum.

Finally, check your freezers, thousands of pot pies are included in the recall roundup. 2.5 pound cartons of Market Day "Chicken Pot Pie made with all white chicken meat" are being recalled because there may be metal straight pins in the pies. The cartons in question have the number "28209" on the right side panel. They were sold in Virginia.
