Toyota recalls pickups to fix air bag problem

DETROIT (AP) - Toyota is recalling about 130,000 Tundra full-size pickup trucks because a plastic trim piece can interfere with the side air bags.

The recall affects Crew-Max and Double Cab versions in the U.S. from the 2014 model year. The company says the trim covering the center pillars behind the front seats may have been installed incorrectly. It could stop air bags from inflating to their intended shape.

Toyota says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries caused by the problem.

Dealers will inspect the trim and replace it if necessary.

Truck owners will be notified of the recall by mail.
