Thursday's business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) -- Here's a look at Thursday's business headlines.

Toyota recall

Toyota is recalling more than a million vehicles.

It includes multiple Toyota, Scion and Lexus brands from model years 2010 through 2017.

Because of a defect in the airbag, the Takata inflators can explode with too much force, potentially causing sharp metal fragments to pass through the airbag and spray directly at the driver and passengers, increasing the risk of death or serious injury.

USDA milk in school

Effective Feb. 11, schools will be allowed to offer flavored low-fat milk instead of only allowing flavoring in fat-ree milk.

More milk will be funneled into the lunch program, helping struggling dairy farmers.

Previously, all grains offered had to be whole grain, under the new rule, only half the grains have to be.

And the policy requiring schools to lower sodium content has been loosened to give more time to reach target goals.


Starbucks needle deposit boxes

Drugs and syringes have become such a problem in Starbucks bathrooms that the company is installing needle-disposal boxes in certain locations.

Some workers are concerned about improperly discarded syringes and the related health risks and they've posted photos on social media.

Trader Joe's

Trader Joe's is the preferred grocery store destination for U.S. consumers of the second consecutive year.

The consumer data science firm Dunnhumby ranked stores on price, quality, discounts and speed of shopping.

Costco ranked second and Amazon was third.
