64K Chevrolet Volts with carbon monoxide risks recalled

An estimated 64,000 Chevrolet Volts are being recalled by its manufacturer due to high levels of carbon monoxide emissions that have harmed several users, tirebusiness.com reported on March 13.

General Motors Co (GM) reports that the recall was issued to address a problem with excessive carbon monoxide emitted from 2011-2013 models of Volts Hybrid vehicles. Carbon monoxide may build up in enclosed spaces if operators leave the vehicle running in gas mode, instead of electric mode. The automaker said that they are aware of two injury complaints due to the problem. GM dealers will update the vehicle’s software to limit the idling period of Volt vehicles to fix the problem.

Reports said New York resident Eric Johnson claimed on February 14 that he suffered severe leg burns after his iPhone 5c erupted inside his pants pocket. Johnson said he was bending over to pick up dropped car keys when he suddenly felt extreme pain in his leg. He immediately began tearing off his pants as the phone started melting the edges of his pocket. The Burn Center in Staten Island University Hospital confirmed that Johnson spent 10 days in the hospital for treatment. Though Apple is not yet coordinating with Johnson’s legal counsel, the company told reporters that they are investigating the incident.
