About Vibrio Parahaemolyticus Poisoning:
Illness caused by V. Parahaemolyticus infection include diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, headache, fever and chills. Symptoms usually appear from 12 to 24 hours after eating contaminated Shellfish and normally last from two to seven days. Vibrio Parahaemolyticus infections can be life-threatening for immune-compromised people or those with chronic liver disease. Also at greater risk are people who regularly take antacids, heart or Diabetes medication, and those who have had antibiotic or Cancer treatments recently.

If you suspect your Shellfish is contaminated, do not eat it or serve it to others. If you experience the symptoms outlined above and suspect Vibrio Parahaemolyticus Poisoning, seek medical care on an emergency basis, taking the suspected contaminated food for further analysis.

Subaru Outback Vehicle Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Subaru (Aust) Pty recalls some MY13 Outback Vehicles due to park gear braking failure hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/nLHIX

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1050378

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports when the Vehicle’s gear selector is set to the “park” position, the parking pawl may not engage and therefore the Vehicle’s parking mechanism may not operate properly. In this case (assuming the parking brake has not been applied), the Vehicle may roll (depending on parking condition e.g. if parked on an incline). This issue does not affect proper operation of the hand brake and if the hand brake is applied the car will not roll.

According to the ACCC, the following Vehicles are subject to this recall:

  • JF2BRFKU6DG050447
  • JF2BRFKU6DG050527
