Volkswagen recalls 70K+ Jettas on alarm wiring glitch
According to a VW spokesperson, the recalled wiring configuration has the car’s horn and alarm systems protected by the same fuse as a “converter box” component that controls certain engine and accessory functions. Under a certain “extremely rare” combination of events, a short could trip the fuse and cause the car’s engine to stall or the headlights and wipers to turn off.
The recall targets the sixth-generation Jetta sedans built starting from last March. Owners of affected vehicles will receive official notification by mail and the wiring will be reconfigured. A revised wiring harness is reportedly being used on cars in production now.
Citalopram, Finasteride Potentially Mislabeled
s of citalopram, an antidepressant, and finasteride, used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia, are being recalled by Greenstone LLC due to possible mislabeling of the bottles, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced.
The recall is being issued because bottles of citalopram may contain finasteride, which should be avoided by pregnant women or women who may be pregnant due to the possible risk of abnormal genital development in male fetuses. In addition, citalopram is contraindicated in patients taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors or pimozide and in those with a hypersensitivity to citalopram or any of the drug’s inactive ingredients. Patients who discontinue citalopram suddenly, by inadvertently taking the mislabeled product, may experience discontinuation symptoms and/or worsening of depression, according to the FDA.
The recall applies to citalopram 10 mg tablets (100-count bottle) and finasteride 5 mg tablets (90-count bottle), which may have been mislabeled by a third-party manufacturer.
According to the FDA, “bottles of either citalopram or finasteride with lot number FI050058-A should be returned. Patients who believe they may have ingested the wrong medication should contact their physician as soon as possible.”
