Ford Motor Co. is recalling around 46,000 Edge sports utility vehicles, covering 2012 and 2013 model years, due to a fuel system leak that may result to a fire, the carmaker and the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. Ford said that no crashes or injuries related to the incident have been reported.

The recall involves 27,800 Edge SUVs in the United States, 13,500 in the Asia Pacific region, 3,400 in Canada and about 900 from other parts world. They are powered by 2.0-liter engines. "The fuel line pulse damper metal housing may crack as a result of an improper manufacturing process," according to a report from the NHTSA.

The regulator said the crack may cause a leak, which in turn could lead to a fire if there is an ignition source. Ford is also recalling around 400 Explorer SUVs covering 2011 and 2012 model years that may have been serviced with a suspect steering gear.

They were serviced after Sept. 1, 2013, Ford said, adding that a software error could lead to a situation in which the steering could lock, thus increasing the risk of a crash. Ford said no crashes or incidents have been reported relating to this issue.
