    Basler Electric recalls transformers

    The circuit breaker in the transformer can fail to trip

    Basler Electric Company of Highland, Ill., is recalling about 11,900 electrical transformers.

    The circuit breaker in the transformer can fail to trip, posing fire and electrical shock hazards.

    No incidents or injuries have been reported.

    This recall involves Basler Class 2 electric transformers with date codes between 1435 and 1446 that use a Tyco circuit breaker. The date code is located on the top line of the transformer's data plate.

    The transformers, manufactured in Mexico, were sold by Basler Electric to manufacturers and distributors of end products that contain these transformers from September 2014, to November 2014, for various prices.

    Manufacturers and distributors should immediately stop distributing the recalled transformers and contact Basler to receive free replacement transformers. Due to the risk of shock, consumers should not attempt to open or replace the recalled transformers on their own but should contact the manufacturer of their product for further instructions. Basler has notified manufacturers and distributors about the recall directly.

    Various MINI Cooper Hardtops recalled

    Inappropriate air bag activation/deactivation may occur

    BMW of North America is recalling 38 model year 2014-2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 door vehicles manufactured February 25, 2014, to May 16, 2015; 2014-2015 MINI Cooper S Hardtop 2 door vehicles manufactured March 28, 2014, to May 9, 2015; 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop 4 door vehicles manufactured October 17, 2014, to June 2, 2015; and 2015 MINI Cooper S Hardtop 4 door vehicles manufactured November 24, 2014, to June 11, 2015.

    During a service appointment, the vehicles received replacement front passenger seat cushions (which contain integral Capacitive Interior Sensing (CIS) functions). The CIS functions may have been incorrectly calibrated, and if so, would cause impaired occupant classification and thus inappropriate air bag activation/deactivation.

    Inappropriate air bag activation/deactivation can increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a vehicle crash.

    MINI will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 28, 2015.

    Owners may contact MINI customer service at 1-866-825-1525.
