Details: The company initially stood by its product when the American Academy of Pediatrics initially asked for the recall of the "deadly" sleeper, per the Washington Post. While using the Rock ’n Play Sleepers, infants would roll over, and then suffocate, per AP. The product has been on the market since 2009.

Harley-Davidson is issuing a recall on nearly 178,000 motorcycles in the U.S. because the bikes have a clutch problem causing them to get stuck in gear, the Associated Press reports.

The details: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration posted documents detailing how the clutches can leak fluid internally, "making it so the clutch doesn’t have enough lift to disengage the bikes from gears." Riders may lose control and increase their chances of crashing. Affected models include ones built in 2017 and 2018. See models affected here.
