The following recalls were issued Sept. 27 - Oct. 1 by federal and state agencies:

Torch Fuel Containers: Lamplight Farms Inc. is recalling Flame Guards on Clear-Vu® Torch Fuel Containers sold January 2008 - 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-Vu® Torch Fuel Containers sold as replacements. "RC" is stamped on the underside of the flame guard. Consumers should contact Lamplight, 866- 671-7988,, to receive a free repair kit.

Tractors: Deere & Company is recalling Compact Utility Tractors sold July 2009 - 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. Consumers should contact a John Deere dealer or Deere & Company, 800-537-8233,, to schedule a free repair.

Diving Equipment: Halcyon Manufacturing Inc. is recalling Halcyon Diving Equipment sold January 2006 - December 2008. The over pressure valves (OPVs) in the diving equipment could fail allowing the buoyancy compensator devices (BCDs) and the diver lift inflatable devices to leak, posing a drowning hazard. This recall involves Halcyon diving equipment including the Halcyon Explorer, Eclipse, CCR35, Evolve and Pioneer Buoyancy Compensator Devices (BCDs) and Halcyon Surface Marker Buoys (SMBs), Lift Bags, Diver Alert Markers (DAMs) Surf Shuttle and Diver Lift Raft Inflatable Devices. "Halcyon" is printed on the diving equipment. Consumers should return the equipment to an authorized Halcyon distributor, dealer or Halcyon, 800-425-2966,, for a free inspection.
