A Marine woman driving on Interstate 15 in Fallbrook was startled by a loud bang. It was the sunroof of her brand new 2013 Kia Sorento. Krystal Miller says the sunroof exploded.

Krystal Miller told News 8 that as she was driving, she started to feel a lot of pressure in her ears. She said, “I was trying to pop them and the next thing I hear what sounded like a gunshot– literally sounded like a shotgun or something went off inside the car… a couple seconds later, I’m covered in glass.”

Krystal said a metal rod from the sunroof then came crashing down on her chest, “and I whipped the wheel, and I almost flipped my car over, because I was going 75 mph in middle lane on cruise control. It was really traumatizing. I’m just really thankful that my daughter wasn’t killed, or me, and that I was able to gain control of my car after the pole hit me.”

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently recalled over 1 million light-up children’s eyeglasses and rings, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The toys, which were distributed by Chuck E. Cheese restaurants, were recalled because the small batteries inside may cause severe internal injuries if swallowed.

The small batteries, known as “button batteries” due to their shape and size, are causing more and more children to be admitted to the hospital for swallowing them. Although the CPSC has received few reports about severe injuries, ten children were admitted to a Utah hospital recently after swallowing the batteries, and one of the children suffered severe digestive-tract damage.

An NBC News article reports that 228 million eggs are being recalled by Iowa-based Wright County Egg due to an outbreak of Salmonella. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced that the eggs have been connected to several illnesses in California, Colorado, and Minnesota. At least 266 Californians and 7 in Minnesota have become ill after eating the contaminated eggs, state health officials report.

The tainted eggs were distributed throughout the U.S. and packaged under the names Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemp.

In amounting to four times the normal number of salmonella cases being reported, the CDC noted that approximately 200 cases of the strain of salmonella linked to the eggs were reported weekly during June and July. Some common symptoms of salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 8 to 72 hours of eating a contaminated product. Salmonella poisoning is not to be taken lightly since it can be life-threatening, particularly for those who have weakened immune systems.
