Subaru of Indiana Automotive

Subaru is cutting back on production and overtime at its Indiana factory to free up parts for a major recall.

The Japanese car-maker has to fix a steering problem in more than 50,000 new vehicles made recently at its only plant in North America.

The Lafayette factory employs more than 4,000 workers -- and thanks to the recall, as many as 3,000 of them may miss out on daily and Saturday overtime for the next few weeks.

Cook Medical /

Bloomington-based Cook Medical is recalling more than 4 million catheters. The devices feature are primarily used for vascular catheterization to make it easier for doctors to see the tip of the catheter.

They’re being recalled because when the tip of the catheter breaks or cracks, it creates a risk that part of it could remain in the patient’s body.

Cook Medical Global Content Manager Marsh Lovejoy says the recall was voluntary.
