No more serious safety issues lurking, GM CEO says

DETROIT – General Motors CEO Mary Barra says a thorough review of safety issues at the company hasn’t turned up any more serious problems.

She also said at a news conference ahead of GM’s annual meeting that personnel changes related to a deadly ignition switch problem are finished. The company forced out 15 workers last week after an outside attorney blamed them for failing to act on the problem.

Barra said there will be some minor adjustments to GM’s structure after the investigation by former U.S. Attorney Anton Valukas.

GM has acknowledged knowing about the ignition switch problem for at least a decade, but didn’t recall the cars until early this year. At least 13 people have died in crashes linked to the switches.
