Toyota is recalling 128,316 Camry sedans because the side air bags may not inflate properly, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

Involved in the recall are Camry sedans from model years 2002-2004 that have optional side air bags. The defect hasn’t been blamed for any deaths or injuries, Toyota spokeswoman Julie Alfonso told AP – a supplier discovered the defect.

Toyota reportedly said improper assembly caused some bags to become twisted – if that happens, not enough gas will be released to inflate the air bag in a crash.

Dealers will inspect the air bags for free and replace them if necessary – the company is scheduled to begin notifying customers about the recall next month, AP added.
