Hyundai Tucson models face recall over fears engines could catch fire even when switched off

Owners of Hyundai Tucsons up to six years old have been told to park the vehicles in an open space away from garages and flammable materials due to fears a manufacturing error could lead to the car’s engine catching fire, even when the vehicle is turned off.

A recall notice issued by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on Thursday said the electronic circuit board in the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) module may short circuit when the components are exposed to moisture.

It warned owners of Tucson models made from 2015 to 2021 to park affected vehicles in an open space away from flammable materials and structures, such as garages, and wait to be contacted.

To prevent power surge and eliminate the risk of fire, a relay kit will be installed on the circuit board free of charge by an authorised Hyundai dealership.

The ACCC said more than 93,572 vehicles were affected by the recall.

The recall notice states the risk of engine fire remained even when the vehicle was turned off, as the circuit is constantly powered.

“This could increase the risk of an accident, serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders, and/or damage to property,” the ACCC recall notice states.

However, the short circuit does not impact the functioning of the ABS.

More to come.

Coach Graham Arnold confirms Maccabi Haifa striker Nikita Rukavytsya in line for Australia recall

Last year, Rukavytsya had the longest unbroken scoring run in top-division football anywhere on the planet, according to the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS), with a streak between August and December in which he bagged at least one goal in 13 consecutive games.

The IFFHS also rated him at ninth in their ‘World’s Best Top Scorer’ award for 2020, sandwiched between names such as Robert Lewandowski, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Kylian M’bappe – incredible company for any player, let alone one with a CV as humble as Rukavytsya’s.

Arnold has been thoroughly impressed as he patiently awaits the end of what has been the longest break between matches for the Socceroos in more than 50 years, having gone through 2020 without so much as a training camp.

But Australia’s qualifying path for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is finally set to resume next month with an away trip to Nepal, and Arnold said Rukavytsya – who last wore the green and gold against Honduras in November 2017 – was in the frame for a call-up.

“With COVID, there’s no guarantees with anything. But in a football sense, you look at how well he’s doing, and he’s on that list to be looked at,” Arnold said. “A kid that’s doing fantastic, got fourth in player of the year in Asia – we’re crazy not to look. I watch his games every week and he’s got a coach and a style that is fitting and suiting him exceptionally well.

“The reason why he’s gone to this other level is like anything – he’s at that age of maturity and experience. Now when he gets half a chance in front of goal, he’s calm, he’s relaxed and he just finishes it. When you’re a bit younger you have a rush of blood or you’re a bit more excited.

“He’s 33 years of age but he hasn’t lost one bit of his speed. If anything his touch has got much better, [as has] his awareness of his runs in the box.”


Rukavytsya moved to Israel, where his wife is from, after leaving the Wanderers in 2015 and spent a year with Beitar Jerusalem before signing for Maccabi Haifa. Now in his fifth season with the club, the Socceroo was reportedly in the process of obtaining Israeli citizenship several years ago.

“It’s a big thing for a player when they’re away from home, happiness off the field, and being settled in a stable environment. He is that,” Arnold said.

“He’s been at the one club for a number of years now, he’s a legend of the club. He’s a quiet kid, a great kid, he’s proud to wear that Australian shirt and he’s desperate to get back in it.”

The Socceroos are officially scheduled to play a home World Cup qualifier against Kuwait on March 25, but sources say that match is likely to be postponed until the June international break, because of difficulties getting players in and out of the country. The Nepal game, however, is a certainty to be played as slated on March 30, and travel exemptions from that country’s government could enable Arnold to call up a strong squad of overseas-based players.

Meanwhile, Arnold welcomed Mat Ryan’s loan move to Arsenal, with the Socceroo poised for his first minutes at the English Premier League club this weekend if he can recover from a minor hip injury in time.


Ryan missed Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton on Wednesday morning (AEST), when he would have been called upon after a red card to first-choice goalkeeper Bernd Leno in the second half.

Leno is now suspended for Arsenal’s next match on Saturday away to Aston Villa.

“I texted him this morning – he had a very, very small hip injury, so it made him not be on the bench … but the goalkeeper got sent off so let’s expect Maty to play this weekend for Arsenal,” Arnold said.

“It just shows you the respect Maty has in the UK and the EPL that a big club like Arsenal wants him to be part of the club. He’s got a chance of playing rather than being at Brighton where he was told he wasn’t going to be playing, and that gives the guy a lot of energy and renewed thoughts about moving forward.”

Australia v India: Joe Burns dropped as hosts recall David Warner and Will Pucovski

Burns scored 63 runs across four innings in the first two Tests of the series
Venue: Sydney Cricket Ground Date: 6 January
Coverage: Live radio commentary on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra & BBC Sport website, plus desktop, tablets, mobiles and app.

Australia have dropped opener Joe Burns and recalled David Warner and uncapped batsman Will Pucovski for the final two Tests against India next month.

Warner missed both matches with a groin injury while Pucovski, 22, was due to make his debut before suffering a concussion in a warm-up match.

The third Test begins on 6 January.

Having not scored a domestic fifty this season, Burns was not expected to play in the first Test until the injuries to Warner and Pucovski.

The 31-year-old hit an unbeaten 51 in the second innings of the first Test but made scores of eight, nought and four in his other innings – as well as four, nought, nought and one in four warm-up innings.

If Australia hand highly rated Pucovski, who averages 247.5 in the Sheffield Shield this season, a debut, Matthew Wade is likely to move back into the middle order from his role as a makeshift opener.

Selector Trevor Hohns confirmed Pucovski “has been symptom-free for some time” after suffering a ninth concussion of his career – not all of them cricket-related – on 8 December but he must pass a further test before being cleared to play.

Fast-bowling all-rounder Sean Abbott has recovered from a calf strain and has also been recalled to the squad.

A popular Australian Apple Juice recall was issued amid fear of microbial contamination

A popular brand of an apple juice which is being sold at Woolworths and IGA supermarkets across Australia have been called out over fears of microbial contamination.

Nudie Food has issued the recall of its ‘Nudie nothing but 2 apples 200ml’ products last December 24. The said juice, being sold at Woolworth’s supermarket nationally, at IGA stores in NSW, Victoria and South Australia, are independent food retailers in Queensland, Tasmania and WA.

According to the Food Standards Australia New Zealand, “The recall is due to microbial (mycotoxin – patulin) contamination and the juice may cause illness if consumed. Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.”

This Australian manufactured juice has its recorded expiry date for the 18th of June 2021 as is assumed to be best consumable within the days preceding its expiration. However, due to the issued recall, the sale volume of the product would dramatically decrease.

The said recall of the popular beverage product comes after Woolworths extended a total recall for its own-brand, 1kg bags of cooked and peeled cocktail prawns to every state and territory but Queensland.

The prawns originate from Thailand and the recall was due to “potential microbial contamination”, which “may cause illness if consumed”.

India makes four changes for Boxing Day Test against Australia at MCG as Rishabh Pant gets recall

India has wielded the axe after its record Adelaide collapse, bringing in four fresh faces for today’s Boxing Day Test against Australia at the MCG.

Captain Virat Kohli (parental leave) and Mohammed Shami (broken arm) were already forced omissions, but the changes have not ended there.

Explosive wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has earned a recall as the tourists aim to bounce back at the MCG.

Veteran keeper Wriddhiman Saha makes way for Pant, while the uncapped Shubman Gill comes in for an out-of-sorts Prithvi Shaw.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is over his injury concerns and has been included, as has pace debutant Mohammed Siraj.

With star opener David Warner still injured, Australia will take an unchanged line-up into the second Test as it seeks to go 2-0 up in the blockbuster series.

India had the edge over Australia heading into day three of the first Test before an almighty collapse saw the tourists skittled for 36 — the lowest total in their history.

Batsman Ajinkya Rahane takes the reins from Kohli for the remainder of the four-Test series and says he is unconcerned by the mind games happening in the wake of the dramatic second innings capitulation.

Australian coach Justin Langer declared he would be fine if the tourists were feeling the pressure after the eight-wicket loss.

“Australians are very good at playing mind games and we let them do that,” Rahane said.

“We are just focusing on ourselves, what we want to do as a team, as a unit, and we will back ourselves as a team.”

Rahane says India will take confidence from its resounding win against Australia at the MCG in 2018, which ensured it retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

The teams then played out a draw at the SCG, meaning India won a Test series in Australia for the first time, taking the spoils 2-1.

‘If we give them an inch, they’ll take a mile’

Australia is still heeding the lessons of its flat end to last year’s Ashes and is focused on not faltering in the Boxing Day Test.

Cricket legends, including Ricky Ponting, believe the tourists’ historic collapse could bring about mental scars and result in a disastrous defence of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

While India seem to be in crisis, Australian captain Tim Paine does not have to think too hard about how easily complacency can set in.

Australia celebrated hard after retaining the Ashes in England last year for the first time since 2001, but then dropped the fifth Test as the hosts levelled the series at 2-2.

“The moment we take our foot off the pedal, and think we’re going all right [performances can slip],” Paine said.

“We saw in England in that fifth Test we can come unstuck pretty quickly.

“A huge focus of ours since that fifth Test since the Ashes has been winning after winning.

“But we’ve been fantastic in how we’ve prepared for this game.

“We can’t pay any attention to mental scars or whatever people are talking about. India is a proud cricket country, they’re an extremely talented side.

“We know some of the players they’re talking about coming in … if we give them an inch, they’ll take a mile.”

This encounter would normally draw a crowd of up to 80,000, but just 30,000 people will be allowed into the MCG.

Despite the strange build-up due to COVID-19 restrictions, Paine is happy just to be playing the Boxing Day Test at the MCG.

“Seeing the MCG sometimes with 30,000 in it you’re a bit disappointed when you turn up,” he said.

“To have 30,000 fans there is certainly better than not playing the Boxing Day Test at the MCG, so everyone’s excited.”

Joe Burns, who entered the series under fire, will again partner Matthew Wade at the top of the order after the Queenslander’s unbeaten 51 in the first Test.

Health Canada adds to growing hand sanitizer recall list, warns of possible health risks

Health Canada continues to expand its growing recall of hand sanitizers sold in Canadian stores that the agency says may pose certain health risks.

The agency said the hand sanitizers have been recalled because they either contain ingredients that are not permitted for use in Canada or are not properly labelled and are missing important information.

The recall, issued in June and updated on Friday, advises anyone with the products in their home to stop using them immediately and consult a health-care professional if they have health concerns.

The latest addition to the recall notice includes Heyseller Inc.’s HeyPur hand sanitizer (NPN 80099351) for containing the “unacceptable medicinal ingredient” of 1-propanol.

Health Canada says frequent use of hand sanitizers containing 1-propanol may cause eye, nose and throat irritation, as well as dry cracking skin, drowsiness and headaches.

Other “unauthorized denaturants” found in the recalled products, such as industrial-grade ethanol and methanol, can cause dermatitis, eye irritation, upper respiratory system irritation, headaches and irritated or cracked skin, according to Health Canada.

Other recently recalled hand sanitizer include:

  • Daily Shield Hand Sanitizer, made by 10932540 Canada Inc./Bio Life Sciences Corp.
  • Snake Lake Brewing Company – Ethanol Sanitizer 80%
  • Bio Life Hand Sanitizer, made by 10932540 Canada Inc./Bio Life Sciences Corp.
  • Siding 14 Brewing Company – Ethanol Sanitizer 80%
  • Concept Manufacturing Ltd – Ethanol Sanitizer 75%; Sani-Soft Sanitizing Skin Cleanser
  • PurGerme (4 L format), made by Groupe LAV Inc.
  • The 101 Coast Distillery Hand + Surface Sanitizer

A list of the previously recalled hand sanitizers can be found here.

Health Canada says it has directed the companies in the recall to stop the sale of these products. The agency asks that those affected to report any “adverse events” or complaints regarding the recall to Health Canada.

Canadians are asked to consult their municipal or regional guidelines on how to properly dispose of the products. The products can also be returned to local pharmacies for disposal.

Health Canada has released a full list of sanitizers approved for sale in Canada and another list of acceptable products, which may not meet full regulatory requirements but are safe for use and will help meet national demand. The agency says hand sanitizers that have been authorized will display either a Natural Product Number (NPN) or Drug Identification Number (DIN) on the product label.

Health officials continue to advise Canadians to regularly wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to limit the spread of COVID-19. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers can be used if soap and water is not available.

The FDA posts recall of erectile dysfunction and antidepressant drugs

The Food and Drug Administration has posted a voluntary recall issued by AvKARE, a Tennessee-based pharmaceutical and infection control company. The issue? AvKARE discovered that two of their generic medications had a packaging mix-up. Those medications are sildenafil, which is used to treat erectile dysfunction, and trazodone, an antidepressant.

The two medications were inadvertently packaged together during the bottling phase of production at an unnamed third-party bottling facility. Needless to say, any medication switch can be dangerous. The fear with this one is especially geared toward people thinking they are taking the antidepressant, while actually taking sildenafil, the active ingredient in the brand-name Viagra. As the FDA makes clear:

Unintentional consumption of sildenafil may pose serious health risks to consumers with underlying medical issues. For example, sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease often take nitrates.

Yet the unintentional intake of trazodone while a person thinks they are taking sildenafil can also cause problems, including “somnolence/sedation, dizziness, constipation, and blurred vision. These adverse events may be more concerning in elderly patients due to a subsequent increased risk for falls and driving impairment,” the FDA says.

The affected lots of medicines involved in the mix-up include:

  • 100 mg tablets of sildenafil with a lot number of 36884, and an expiration date of 03/2022.
  • 100 mg tablets of trazodone hydrochloride with a lot number of 36783 and an expiration date of 06/2022.

AvKARE says consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact the company at 1-855-361-3993 Monday-Friday (8 a.m.-4 p.m. CST). They also note that consumers should contact their doctor immediately if they experience adverse symptoms from taking the mixed-up products.

We’ve reached out to AvKARE to ask for additional comment on the matter.

O’Connor set for Wallabies recall at No.10

James O’Connor is tipped to regain the Wallabies’ No.10 jumper for Australia’s final Test of the year on Saturday night against Argentina.

Knee and foot injuries have sidelined O’Connor from their past three Bledisloe Cup and Tri Nations outings.

But the 30-year-old is expected to make his comeback as chief playmaker against the Pumas, with the versatile Reece Hodge set to move to fullback at the expense of Tom Banks.

Hodge has been a stand-out during his two appearances at five-eighth, man of the match in the Wallabies’ upset win over the All Blacks in Brisbane and going within a whisker of booting Australia to victory over the Pumas in their last-start draw.

But he’s seen more of a stop-gap than permanent No.10, with O’Connor favoured to return as five-eighth after overcoming his injury troubles.

In another tick of approval, though, Hodge will likely start as fullback after Banks failed to produce his dynamic best in his three Tests starts this campaign.

O’Connor’s inclusion is unlikely to be Dave Rennie’s only tinker after the first-year Wallabies coach has shown a penchant for change during his five-Test tenure.

Lock Lukhan Salakaia-Loto is available for selection after recovering from his ankle strain and could slot into the second row following a gruelling six Tests in eight weeks for the Wallabies.

The All Blacks have one hand and four fingers on the Tri Nations trophy, with the Wallabies needing to beat the Pumas by 101 points.

It’s a mathematical possibility for the Wallabies that won’t happen at BankWest Stadium.

Coronavirus Stock Market Rally

According to IBD’s The Big Picture, the stock market returned to a new uptrend following a bullish follow-through day on Nov. 4.

Tuesday’s Big Picture commented, “The Dow Jones Industrial Average’s 1.5% gain to 30,046 didn’t simply make history as the first close above a key psychological price level. The action affirms that the Dow’s follow-through day on Nov. 4 was no head-fake of a rally. Since that noteworthy session, the Dow industrials have climbed nearly 7.9%.”

Investors should continue to use the stock market’s strength to buy breakouts. Start slowly with new purchases and see how they perform. If they work, then add more exposure. But if breakouts start to fail, then you can back away.

In particular, focus on stocks with strong relative strength. Find them by using the relative strength line. The RS line measures a stock’s price performance vs. the S&P 500. If the stock is outperforming the broader market, then the RS line angles upward. If a stock is performing worse than the broad market, then the line will point lower.

Stocks to watch include IBD Long-Term Leaders, companies with stable earnings growth and price performance. Fair Isaac (FICO) is the most recent addition to the list, added on Nov. 13. Shares are extended after they cleared resistance around 450.
