A look at the latest recalls and product warnings issued this week.

Chrysler Group is recalling a small number of Dodge Dart cars in the United States because the front seat-mounted side airbags may not deploy, according to safety regulators.

The automaker, controlled by Fiat SpA, is recalling Dart cars from model year 2013 that were equipped with the “Mopar 13” trim package because the airbags may not have been properly installed in the seat, according to documents filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

8K baby rattles recalled
Manhattan Toy is recalling more than 8,000 Quixel baby rattles due to a choking hazard. The rattles, which retailed for about $15 each, were sold at retailers nationwide. Consumers can return the rattles for a full refund.

Lowe’s recalls ride-on lawn mowers
Denver Global Products is recalling about 11,000 ride-on lawn mowers sold exclusively at Lowe’s Home Improvement stores. The vehicles, which retailed for about $3,000, are gas-powered four-wheeled vehicles designed to be used as a lawn mower, garden tractor or portable generator.

The mower blades can detach during use or start without being activated by the operator and the vehicle can move forward unexpectedly, posing a laceration hazard. Also, the fuel lines can leak, posing a fire hazard. The company has received more than 100 consumer complaints.
