I need assistance with a left join on a a SELECT statement.  I am not getting any errors, however, I am not getting any results either...

$conn = new PDO("mysql:host=$host;dbname=$db;charset=$charset", $user, $pass);


// Establish a MySQL connection
	$query2 = $conn->prepare('SELECT * FROM `product`
			LEFT JOIN `product_description`
			USING (product_id)
			LEFT JOIN url_alias
			USING (query)');
    while ($row2 = $query2->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC))
	 echo $row2['product_id']."  ".$row2['description']."  ".$row2['query'];
