Spider Infestation Leads to Recall of 65,000 Mazdas

Spiders

Under the heading of strangest recalls ever, Mazda is weaving the most bizarre of all: 52,000 Mazda6s in the U.S. are being recalled because of possible spider webs. The fear is that they can lead to blockages that will eventually cause fuel tanks to leak.

The recall of 2009 and 2010 Mazda6s is due to "a certain type of spider" that "may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent line and this may cause a restriction in the line," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website. Another 13,000 of the cars sold in Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico are also being recalled
