The loose wires may cause the connector to melt, resulting in a fuel leak. Additionally, the fuel pump may stop working, possibly causing an engine stall and increase the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 5, 2016.

My BMW is a 2008, 535xi twin-turbo. Every since I bought this vehicle, brand new, I've had nothing but ongoing fuel related issues.
