School Buses Recalled for Brake Problems

Blue Bird Body Company recently recalled several of their school buses due to the brake valve plunger fracturing during brake application. The condition could result in reduced breaking ability and could lead loss of vehicle control.

Blue Bird All American School Bus Recall

According to official recall release, the brake valve plunger on certain Blue Bird school buses may fracture during the brake application, reducing the brake pedal angle and travel. This may limit the driver’s ability to deliver full pressure from the foot brake valve. Also, the brake plunger could be lodged and not allow the release of the service brakes. These two conditions can cause reduced braking ability and increase the risk of crashing.

Child Danger Alert- Tide Detergent Pods

Proctor and Gamble is changing the lids on their Tide Pods single dose laundry detergent packages after several reports of children becoming ill as a result of ingesting the colorful detergent packages.

“Poison centers are reporting a recent uptick in calls about exposures of children to laundry detergents packaged in small, single-dose packets. Some young children and toddlers who swallow these small packets have become very ill and have required hospitalization,” American Association of Poison Control Centers.

The Dangers of Single Dose Detergent Pods

Tide Pods, which hit the market this year, deliver a laundry-load dose of detergent in one packet. They come in a fishbowl-like container, and reportedly resemble candy to some young children. Several news outlets are reporting that Proctor and Gamble, the manufacturers of Tide Pods, have decided to put a double latch on the lids of Tide Pods containers to keep children from opening the containers and ingesting the packets inside.

Child Poisoning Incidents

The following single dose laundry detergent poisoning incidents were reported to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

  • Ten minutes after a 20-month-old swallowed a laundry detergent packet, the child developed profuse vomiting, wheezing and gasping and then became unresponsive to even painful stimuli.
  • A 15-month-old who bit into a pack and swallowed a mouthful had profuse vomiting and, after arrival at a hospital, had to be put on a ventilator for airway protection.
  • A 17-month-old bit into a packet and then rapidly developed drowsiness, vomited, breathed the product into the lungs, and had to be put on a ventilator.
Additional Information for Parents
  • Tide pods are single dose packages of detergent; they are blue, orange and white.
  • Large tide pods are packaged in a clear fish bowl-like container, while traditional tide pods are packaged in resalable bags.
  • Individuals most at risk for detergent poisoning are children. Parents/Caregivers should make it harder for children to reach washing detergents by placing them high up and out of reach.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Recall- Airbag Issues

General Motors is recalling 4,304 2013 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles manufactured from October 24, 2011 through March 31, 2012 due to various airbag issues which could increase the chance of personal injury in an auto accident.

About the Chevrolet Malibu Recall

General Motors is recalling certain 2013 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles due to an electrical system issue, more specifically a software issue, which could cause the airbags not to deploy.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) could reset itself after a hard breaking event occurs. If this occurs during a strong turn and a potential vehicle rollover event is sensed then the roof rail airbag could deploy unintentionally. Additionally, the airbags and/or seatbelt pretensioners may not deploy during a severe crash. These consequences could increase the risk of personal injury.

Information for Chevy Malibu Owners

  • General Motors will notify the affected owners and dealers will replace the SDM free of charge.
  • This safety recall is expected to begin on June 1, 2012.
  • General Motor’s safety recall campaign number is 12102.
  • Affected owners may contact the NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go online at http://www.safercar.gov.

Device Makers Defend Transvaginal Mesh

Several medical device makers are standing by their transvaginal mesh products despite FDA warnings, independent panel findings, and consumer reports of severe complications associated with the transvaginal placement of mesh products.

“Boston Scientific believes that mesh products are a valuable option for surgeons who treat women with pelvic floor disorders and stress urinary incontinence and that these products offer a safe and effective alternative to non-mesh treatment options,” official statement from Boston Scientific.

What the Device Makers are Saying

Boston Scientific- Keep transvaginal mesh in the class II status of medical devices.

  • “We believe that the current 510(k) requirements for Class II devices are appropriate for surgical mesh devices intended to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence,” Boston Scientific.

Cook Medical- Consider the materials used in the devices before making rulings for all transvaginal mesh.

  • “Important differences exist between non-absorbable synthetic mesh products and non-crosslinked biologic grafts,” Cook Medical.

Johnson & Johnson and Endo Pharmaceuticals Holdings- More safety studies and labeling changes could help.

  • “[Transvaginal mesh is] not the optimal solution for everyone but it will be for some,” Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit.

About Transvaginal Mesh

Transvaginal mesh and transvaginal mesh patches are woven mesh implants that stretch across the vaginal wall to support damaged tissue or prolapsed organs. The surgical mesh implant, which is made of woven mesh fibers, is used to treat both Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) in women.

In the last three years, the Food and Drug Administration has received thousands of reports of complications stemming from the transvaginal placement of surgical mesh. Complications include:

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Urinary problems
  • Erosion through the vagina
  • Recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence
  • Bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforation during insertion
  • Dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse)
  • Narrowing of the vaginal wall (in POP repair)
  • Decrease in patient quality of life due to discomfort and pain
