General Motors recall: 300 deaths from faulty airbags, reports CAS

(WJLA) - The Center for Auto Safety found 300 deaths involved in the General Motors recall after airbags did not properly deploy.

Documents show that GM was aware of the issue about nine years ago, but did not issue a recall until just last month.

GM says that this is a misrepresentation of crash data and is pure speculation, blaming an ignition switch defect for 12 deaths.

In other news, Giant grocery stores announced a voluntary recall of Dole’s Italian Salad blend. The bagged salad is 10 ounces with a “use by” date of March 12 – and the company says it would be contaminated with a foodborne pathogen.

So far, no illnesses have been reported.

Friday is National Pi Day, and March 14 is when math-minded folks can celebrate the symbol used to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

Many are celebrating with eating pie – fruity or pizza.
