      The device can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards

      Kikkerland Design of New York is recalling about 3,600 wireless charger bedside pockets.

      The wireless charger bedside pockets can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.

      The firm has received three reports of smoke coming from the charger pockets. No injuries have been reported.

      This recall involves Kikkerland’s wireless charger bedside pockets used for recharging mobile phones and devices.

      The recalled chargers have a wireless charging pocket in which a mobile phone or other electronic device is placed.

      The configuration is of an expanding v-shaped file folder with a single pocket and a rigid flap that is pivotally attached on one side. The pocket is typically placed between the mattress and the bed frame. They are made of a dark gray felt material and were sold with a power cord.

      In operation, the cord is plugged into an electronic outlet and the mobile phone is placed into the pocket for recharging.

      The charger pockets, manufactured in China, were sold at Annie’s Blue Ribbon, Kowalski’s, SF MOMA, Therapy stores and other stores nationwide from March 2018, through August 2018, for about $35.

      Model year 2012-2013 Yamaha XTZ12 Super Tenere motorcycles recalled

      The engine may not return to idle after the throttle is released

      Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA is recalling 4,736 model year 2012-2013 Yamaha XTZ12 Super Tenere motorcycles.

      Over time, a gap may develop in the protective sealant where the lead wires of the accelerator position sensor and throttle position sensor connect to the electronic control unit. This may cause corrosion on the wires, preventing the engine from returning to idle after the throttle is released.

      Failure of the engine to return to idle when the throttle is released can lead to a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.

      What to do

      Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will bypass the wire lead connection with a new sub lead harness multi-connector, free of charge.

      The recall is expected to begin in October 2018.

      Briggs & Stratton Corporation of Wauwatosa, Wis., is recalling about 3,000 fuel tank replacement caps made by Kelch/Bemis.
