Why are there so many recall notices involving PEG 3350?

PEG 3350 is the acronym for polyethylene glycol with a molecular mass of 3350 g/mol. This compound may also be referred to as Polyoxyethylene (POE) and Polyethylene Oxide.

This is a comparatively uncomplicated long chain molecule, chemically identical but available in a wide range of molecular masses. It has a huge number of uses, including (but not limited to):

  • Laxatives (osmotic)
  • Toothpaste (as a dispersant)
  • Sexual lubricant
  • Whole Bowel Irrigation and lavage
  • Cosmetics and make-up
  • Body armor
  • Foam cushions
  • Spandex (TM)
  • As a treatment for phenol burns (deactivation of phenol on the wound site)
  • And many, many others...

Every time any product containing PEG is involved in a mandatory recall or official warning, PEG is going to be listed as a component, even if it's not the reason for the recall.

The recent recall (July 2010) is for the Schering-Plough laxative, MiraLax. This is a voluntary manufacturer's recall and not an FDA recall. SPH indicates that the recall is purely for a cosmetic issue: The caps on the 30-unit bottle, when exposed to heat, may appear unusual. SPH further reports there is norisk with the medication at all - it's purely cosmetic.

Please check with your doctor and/or pharmacist for verified information in health matters.

Was there a service bulletin and or a factory recall on the suspension components for the 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon?

Try this link at the alldata.com website. They list the TSB's, but to actually get ahold of them you need a membership. But this is a start. Didn't know the engine you've got - so you have to select it at this link. http://www.alldata.com/TSB/951021_en.html I don't think there was. I just looked on consumerreports.org (which I pay for) and they don't have one listed. What suspension parts do you mean? VBD Iwould do a google for listed recall I looked and this is the only thing close to a suspension/handling issue: Component Description:

Is there a recall of air suspension on Lincoln Navigator?

I wish but at this moment there is not. I have put a call in to complain as we are once again at the dealer replacing height sensors. I think Ford/Lincoln need to offer conversion kits and reimburse for repairs. There is something definitely not right about the build of this suspension.

Does the 1997 Saturn l-series have any recalls?

The Saturn L series didn't come out until 2000. Before then Saturn only made the S series.

I just thought I would add something regarding a 1997 s-series. They did have a recall on the fuel pump/filter (the one that is located in the gas tank) I was sent a letter regarding the recall and then I just had to take it in for a service at Saturn for the free replacement on the recall.

Is there a recall on body bushings on a 2001 Ford Explorer sport?

There is no recall yet on the 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Body Bushings as of Aug 2011.Looks like they were made out of fiberous cork and mine simply rotted out. Ford wants over a $1000.00 at the dealer to buy all these bushings and they are not worth it.

Better to buy them from JEGS who have a polyurathane complete set for $167.00 with all the bushings. Torque down to 55 foot pounds and use locktite generously on the bolt threads for best results.
