Subaru: Don’t drive 2016-17 Outback, Legacy after steering recall

Subaru is recalling more than 50,000 vehicles because the steering could fail

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Subaru is recalling more than 50,000 vehicles because the steering could fail.

The company is warning Legacy and Outback owners to keep the vehicles in park and telling dealers to stop selling them until repairs are made.

Subaru said some 2016 and 2017 models have been manufactured improperly. The steering column may not engage, meaning the steering wheel could rotate freely and the driver could lose control, according to the company.

Subaru says dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and make repairs if necessary. So far, it’s unclear if there have been any crashes or injuries caused by the steering issue.

Also being recalled this week are some Nature’s Promise and Market Basket walnut products because they could be contaminated with Listeria, a potentially deadly bacteria.

The products include Market Basket Cape Cod Cranberry Trail Mix.

No illnesses have been reported so far. Consumers should throw out the products and return the receipt or packaging to a store for a refund.

People with allergies to peanuts or tree nuts should be aware that Whole Foods is recalling a batch of its Korean BBQ Sauce that was mislabeled and actually contains peanut coconut sauce.

The product has a best-by date of Oct. 19, 2017, and was sold at Whole Foods Markets nationwide.
