Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 100,000 Mercury Capris from the 1971 and 1972 model years to fix headlight switches that may fall apart.
The switches may disintegrate when turned on or off, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said last month, disabling several lighting circuits.
Ford said Monday it disagreed with NHTSA's contention that the switches were a safety problem but would recall the cars anyway.
The Capri was imported from Germany until the name was applied to a new U.S. model last fall.
The government also has announced the recall of 3,000 cases of imported wine because the bottles were filled with 1.4 ounces less than the label claimed.
The Gianelli brand wines from Italy in Bardolino, Lambrusco rose and Soave varieties, were labeled as containing 750 millileters, or 25.4 ounces, when in reality they contained 725 millileters, or 24 ounces.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said the wines were imported by Intercontinental Packaging Co., a subsidiary of Johnson Brothers Wholesale Liquor Co., St. Paul, Minn.
The agency said it had recalled the mislabeled wine from retail stores and is holding shipments at wholesale points until the bottles are relabeled. The wine had been distributed to wholesalers in Nashville, Tenn., Durham, N.C., St. Paul, Minn. and Milwaukee, Wis.
