NEW YORK (AP) -- Kolcraft is recalling more than 96,000 Jeep Liberty strollers after at least 18 people were injured by tire blowouts, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The government watchdog group said there have been 39 reports of inner tube ruptures that have caused the wheel rim to break off and become a projectile. The incidents took place mostly when the tires were being inflated, causing cuts and bruises to arms, legs, torso and head or face.
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- United Technologies Corp. says a federal court ordering it to pay $473 million plus interest to compensate for alleged fraud in its sale of fighter jet engines will cut revenue and profit.
Judge Thomas M. Rose of the U.S. Southern District Court of Ohio issued the order Monday. The Hartford, Conn., aerospace company said in a regulatory filing Tuesday that it will appeal the order. With damages, penalties and interest, United Technologies said the penalty would rise to about $660 million.
