A recall has been announced for four late model Volvo vehicles due to an issue with the power seats that could post a safety risk.

In total 7,420 vehicles could be affected by the recall, with the list including the S40, V50, S60 and XC60 crossover from model years 2009 to 2011. The issue surrounds an improperly built passenger seat rail that could allow someone sitting in the seat to move it too far forward, which could result in an injury in the case of an accident.

Volvo is expected to announce the recall shortly with information on when customers will be notified. In the mean time, customers with vehicles affected can contact their Volvo dealer in order to have the car inspected to see if their seat rails are included in the recall.

Volvo recently issued a recall for 6,000 models due to a fuel cutoff issue.
