Following are summaries of product recalls of interest by Transport Canada.

Transport Canada Recall # 2021-022

Issued by ALTEC INDUSTRIES
Manufacturer Recall Number CSN 787
Units Affected  59
Category Equipment

Recall Details
Issue: 
On certain aerial devices and digger derricks, a snap ring in the hydraulic check valve assembly could fail. If this happens, the snap ring can get stuck in the hydraulic system. This could result in continued (uncontrolled) movement of the boom. 
Note: This recall only involves units equipped with a DC pump. 

Safety Risk: 
A boom that drifts or continues to move on its own could create a risk of injury to the operator and nearby people. 

Corrective Actions: 
Altec Industries will notify owners by mail and provide you with instructions for how to inspect the check valve assembly. If the check valve assembly needs to be replaced, Altec will supply a replacement part or set up a service appointment with an Altec Service Center or Mobile Service Technician.

Transport Canada Recall # 2021-025

Issued by GENERAL MOTORS
Manufacturer Recall Number N212328770
Units Affected  614
Category Light Truck & Van, SUV

Recall Details
Issue: 
Long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, may eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger-front airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. If the airbag inflator ruptures, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants or cause damage to the airbag assembly, preventing its proper function. 

Note: This recall is for vehicles that were originally sold or ever registered in certain areas of the United States that experience high or moderate levels of heat and humidity, and that were subsequently imported into Canada. 
Affected states: American Samoa and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), Virginia and West Virginia. 

Safety Risk: 
If the vehicle is involved in a crash requiring an airbag deployment, the airbag inflator could rupture and create a risk of injury. 

Corrective Actions: 
General Motors will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to replace the passenger-front airbag inflator. Note: This recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk. It is expected that all airbag inflators will be replaced before their function would be affected.

Recall Details
Issue: 
Long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, may eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger-front airbag.
