Each week the Personal Injury Law Offices of d’Oliviera & Associates compiles a summary of recalls, FDA warnings, market withdrawals and safety alerts that they feel the public should be aware of for their safety and so that they can make informed decisions.

Here are 21 recalls to be aware of this week.

Medical Devices & Equipment

  • Bard Peripheral Vascular Inc. recalled Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath due to sheath separation, kinking, or tip damage. The FDA has identified this as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall.  Use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death.

  • Audi recalled over 576,000 vehicles for fire and airbag-rupture risks.

Utility/Recreational Vehicles & Automotive Accessories
