About Listeria poisoning:
The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges). Learn about Listeriosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”): http://1.usa.gov/IScAKJ

Jeep Cherokee Recall [Australia]

Australia/Canberra: Chrysler recalls some Jeep Cherokees and Grand Cherokees due to airbag control module failure hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/gGHs2

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1044643

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports a component in the airbag control module may fail, causing the front airbags, side curtain airbags, and/or seatbelt pre-tensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated. If this occurs, it could cause an inadvertent deployment of the airbags which may in turn increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a vehicle crash.

ACCC PRA number: 2013/13446
