BMW recalls X5 xDrive35d vehicles

The fuel filter heater could experience an electrical overload condition

PhotoBMW is recalling 1,540 model year 2009-2010 X5 xDrive35d vehicles equipped with a diesel engine and manufactured from June 13, 2009, through November 9, 2009.

The fuel filter heater, which is used for warming up the diesel fuel during vehicle operation at low outside temperatures, could experience an electrical overload condition and become permanently activated. The heater could remain activated even when the ignition is off and lead to a dead battery. The unit could also overheat, possibly resulting in a vehicle fire.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel filter heater, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in August 2013.

Owners may contact BMW customer relations at 1-800-525-7417.

Hyundai recalls Sonatas and Azeras

PhotoHyundai is recalling 239,000 model year 2006-2010 Sonata vehicles manufactured March 1, 2005, through January 21, 2010; and model year 2006-2011 Azera vehicles manufactured September 27, 2005, through November 22, 2010.

These vehicles were originally sold in, or are currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.

Road salt and water can enter portions of the rear crossmember, leading to corrosion of the crossmember steel. This may lead to detachment of one of the rear control arms. Control arm separation may suddenly change the rear wheel alignment, affecting the handling of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will repair or replace the crossmember assembly. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2013.

Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-734-337-9499. Hyundai's recall number is 113.

The coffee pot handle can break, causing cuts and burns to the consumer. The firm has received more than 1,600 reports of handles breaking, including more than 83 reports of burns and/or cuts.

Some 159,000 units were recalled in June 2012. Another 641 units sold after that time are affected by this re-announcement

The recalled coffeemaker is designed to mount under a cabinet. It is available in white or black and has the words "BLACK & DECKER SPACEMAKER" printed in the top right-hand corner of the product. The coffeemakers have a digital time display in the top left corner and five round buttons above the water reservoir for programming.

The model number is printed on the underside of the coffeemaker, directly below the water reservoir. Model number SDC 740 was previously recalled with other eight models in 2012.

The coffeemakers, manufactured in China, were sold at True Value hardware stores nationwide from July 2008, to June 2013, for about $50 to $80.

Consumers should immediately stop using the coffeemakers and contact Applica for a full refund of the under-the-counter coffeemaker.

The product can be easily mistaken by a child for candy and ingested

PhotoBe Amazing! Toys, of Salt Lake City, Utah, is recalling about 15,400 Monster Science and Super Star Science! Colossal Water Balls in the U.S. and Canada.

The soft and colorful product can be easily mistaken by a child for candy. If the marble-sized toy is ingested, it can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. The toys do not show up on an x-ray and require surgery to be removed from the body.

No incidents or injuries have been reported, but U.S officials are aware of one incident with a similar water-absorbing polymer ball product in which an 8-month-old girl ingested the ball and it had to be surgically removed.

This recall involves marble-sized toys that absorb water and grow up to 400 times their original size. They were sold as Monster Science Colossal Water Balls (model #7255) and Super Star Science! Colossal Water Balls (model #7704). Monster Science packages contain eight balls and “Growth Powder.” Super Star Science! packages contain five balls. The balls were sold in an assortment of blue, green, orange, purple, red, yellow or clear colors.

The “Be Amazing! Toys” star logo, “Ages 8+”, the name of the toy, “Colossal Water Balls” and a warning not to use without adult supervision are on the front of each product’s packaging. Model numbers are printed on the back of the packaging.

The balls, manufactured in China, were sold at specialty retailers and education centers nationwide and online from September 2010, through November 2012, for about $3 per package.

Consumers should immediately take this recalled toy away from children and contact Be Amazing! Toys for a refund.

Consumers may contact Be Amazing! Toys toll-free at (877) 798-9795, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
