Germany’s automotive regulator has called on Tesla Inc. to issue a recall for its models Y and 3 because of a technical problem in the cars’ emergency system.
The Federal Motor Transport Authority can only order a recall in Germany, but said on its website that a total of more than 59,000 Teslas would be affected worldwide.
The German agency identified a glitch with the cars’ emergency system, which should automatically call 911 in the U.S., or the relevant emergency line in other countries, in the event of a serious accident. Affected owners were told to call the manufacturer or drive to an authorized repair shop for a software update.
The notice was published on June 29 and reported by public broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg on Saturday. The affected cars were produced this year and, according to RBB, include Model Y vehicles built at Tesla’s new factory near Berlin.
Model Y cars are also produced at the group’s plants in Fremont, California, and near Shanghai. Both factories also build the Model 3.
Tesla’s quarterly production and delivery figures are scheduled for this weekend and are expected to break a multi-quarter streak of record-setting results, mostly because of a prolonged COVID-19-related shutdown and logistical challenges at the Shanghai factory.

Husband catches wife on camera allegedly poisoning him with Drano
A California woman was allegedly caught on camera by her husband pouring Drano into his drinks on several occasions.
Dr. Jack Chen fell ill in March and April with stomach ulcers, gastritis, and inflammation of the esophagus, according to his lawyer, Steven Hittelman, and became suspicious that his wife, dermatologist Dr. Yue Yu, was poisoning him. Chen set up nanny cameras in their kitchen and discovered the footage, from which screenshots have been submitted in Chen's filing for a restraining order.
Yu was arrested Thursday after police completed a search warrant on the couple’s $2.5 million mansion in Irvine. Yu, who also goes by Emily, made her $30,000 bail and was released from jail Friday, court documents show.

Chen and Yu have been married 10 years and have two children together.
"If our children let Emily know that they enjoyed spending time with me, or showed affection toward me, then Emily would put them in their room and yell at them until they assured her they would not show affection toward me," Chen wrote in his restraining order filing.
