Lamplight Farms Inc. is recalling Flame Guards on Clear-VuŽ Torch Fuel Containers sold nationwide from January 2008 to August 2009. The flame guards on the recalled replacement torch fuel containers can malfunction and cause the containers to melt while the torch is in use, posing a fire hazard. 

 The recall involves Clear-VuŽ Torch Fuel Containers sold as replacements. "RC" is stamped on the underside of the flame guard.

Deere & Company is recalling Compact Utility Tractors sold nationwide from July 2009 to August 2009. An incorrectly sized differential was installed in the tractor transaxle affecting the engagement of the differential lock and causing the tractor to turn to the left when braking. This causes the vehicle to veer left when the brake is applied, posing a risk of collision and injury to the operator and bystanders. 

The recalled tractors have model numbers 3032E and 3038E painted on the side of the tractor. The serial number plate is on the tractor frame above the front wheel to the right of the operator. Visit www.recalls.org for a complete list of serial numbers.
