Subaru Recalls Over 271K SUVs Due To Fire Hazard

Subaru has recalled over 271,000 SUVs because some of them could catch fire.

The company has advised owners of 271,694 units of 2019 to 2022 model year Subaru Ascent SUVs to park them outside, away from garages or other structures, and not to leave the vehicles unattended with the engine running.

According to the company, the ground bolt that secures the ground terminal of the Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater may have been improperly fastened, which could result in melting of the ground terminal and surrounding components.

The PTC heater is part of a back-up heating system that operates until the engine is warmed up enough to heat the passenger cabin.

If an owner notices or smells smoke coming from the dash or driver’s footwell area, the company has advised that they should immediately stop operating the vehicle and turn the ignition switch to the “Off” position.

Dealers will replace the PTC heater ground bolts and if necessary, replace the ground wire and the connector holder, free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed February 6, 2023

Specific Lots Of Detect Covid-19 Test Recalled

Detect, Inc. has recalled specific lots of the Detect Covid-19 Test citing possibility to give false negative results, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said. The reliability of positive test results is not affected.

The molecular, over-the-counter test is used to identify SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, in self-collected nasal swabs.

The recall affects a total of 11,102 tests shipped to customers from July 26, 2022 through August 26, 2022. The test was granted Emergency Use Authorization or EUA from the FDA on October 28, 2021.

The affected tests include 7,382 units with lot number HB264, 1,800 units with lot number HB263, and 1,920 units with lot number HB264. The Use By Date of all recalled products is 1/1/2023.

There is an increased chance that the tests from these lot numbers may give false negative results. The issue was identified after a thorough investigation by the company.

However, Detect has not received any reports of false negative results related to the affected lots to date.

The company noted that test users who attempt to use recalled tests will be notified in the Detect App that the test has been recalled and may not be used.

Meanwhile, Detect Hubs are not affected by the recall and do not need to be discarded.

Detect will issue a refund for the affected tests.
