    Moreover, the company said the latest recall is due to the possibility that the outer ring of the engine’s crankshaft pulley may become misaligned with the inner ring, causing noise or a warning signal to light up, the company’s U.S. sales unit. Toyota was founded by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937 as a spin-off from his father’s company Toyota Industries to create automobiles.

    Three years earlier, in 1934, while still a department of Toyota Industries, it created its first product, the Type A engine, and, in 1936, its first passenger car, the Toyota AA. Toyota Motor Corporation group companies are Toyota (including the Scion brand), Lexus, Daihatsu and Hino Motors, along with several “non-automotive” companies. TMC is part of the Toyota Group, one of the largest conglomerates in the world.

    Contaminated Beef Scare Hits Japan

    17. July 2011

    Residents and officials of the fish and beef loving country of Japan is now experiencing a new kind of fear.

    According to reports, many people in Japan have stopped eating beef after it was confirmed that some of the beef products of the country had been found contaminated with radioactive substances. Authorities in Japan revealed a big number of these contaminated beef had already been shipped to the different parts of Japan which further heighten the fears of the residents.

    To remedy the situation, the government is set to ban all beef shipments from Fukushima prefecture, with the area’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant still emitting radioactivity. It was learned that more than four months into the nuclear crisis, Japan has not set up a centralized system to check food for radiation, relying instead on testing carried out by local authorities.

    Kohei Otsuka, senior vice health minister, revealed that the beef shipment ban may also be expanded to cover areas outside of Fukushima, depending on the results of investigations into the extent of the contamination. The government assured the public that there is no immediate health threat from eating standard servings of the beef.

    The most important characteristic of Japanese beef is the white parts of fat in the meat, known as sashi in Japanese.The sashi is interspersed between layers of red meat and gives the beef a marbled pattern. This marbling is the most prized aspect of Japanese beef and cattle farmers go to great lengths to create intense patterns that make the meat literally melt in your mouth.

    In fact, the beef grading systems in most countries are directly related to how much marbled fat is present. Fat in Japanese beef is primarily monounsaturated, which is known to lower ‘bad’ cholesterol! Monounsaturated fats also have a very low melting point, making the beef literally melt in your mouth. A steak of top quality A5 grade wagyu can cost $500 or more in Tokyo’s fine dining scene.
