German government agency finds potentially poisonous EV components

The German ministry for transport (KBA) has found that some vehicles potentially received parts contaminated with cadmium. The suspicion is now being investigated. The exact components potentially affected or their vehicles were not specified by the source.

Due to it’s high toxicity, cadmium is widely restricted. Should the investigation find dangerous levels of cadmium, this could mean the recall of more than 100,000 vehicles.
