A look at the latest recalls.

Kia recalls 80K minivans
Kia Motors Corp. is recalling nearly 80,000 minivans in the U.S. because a suspension part can break and cause drivers to lose control of the vehicles.

The recall affects Sedona minivans from 2006 through 2012. They were sold or registered in 20 states and Washington, D.C., where salt is used to clear roads in the winter.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the lower control arms near the wheels can rust and break due to salt exposure. Kia dealers will inspect the parts and rustproof or replace them for free starting next month.

2 infant deaths prompt baby monitor recall
Canadian-based Angelcare Monitors, Inc. is recalling 600,000 baby monitors after two infants strangled themselves in the unit’s cord and died. The monitors are sold nationwide at retailers including Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, Meijer and Sears. Parents should immediately stop using the monitors and contact the company for a replacement part.

Fire hazard prompts refrigerator recall
Viking Refrigerators are recalling side-by-side refrigerators due to an electrical connection that can fail and potentially catch fire.
