A look at the week’s top recalls.

GM, Chevy recalling pickups
General Motors Co. is recalling nearly 19,000 of its all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks to repair a problem with the manual reclining seatback, according to a notice from U.S. auto safety regulators.

On some of the trucks, the front seats may have a defect in the reclining mechanism. As a result, the seatbacks fail to comply with federal auto safety standards on head restraints. The recalled models were built between Aug. 1 and Sept. 10. GM’s truck roll-out began in June and represents the most important vehicle launch for the No. 1 U.S. automaker since its 2009 bankruptcy restructuring.

22K Calphalon blenders recalled
A piece of the blender’s mixing blade can come loose, injuring the user. The blenders retail for $130 and are sold at retailers nationwide. The company is recalling 22,000 units with multiple manufacturer numbers.

Snoopy Sno-Cone makers recalled due to risk of mouth injuries
More than 100,000 of the Snoopy Sno-Cone makers, manufactured by LaRose Industries, are being recalled after reports of a brass piece coming loose and potentially falling into a sno-cone. The units have been sold through a variety of retailers, including Amazon, from September 2012 through July.
