March 14, 2018—A failure to properly affix steering wheels has triggered a recall of 1.38 million Ford and Lincoln cars in North America, USA Today reports.

Ford Motor said Wednesday that it is issuing a safety recall for the 2014 through 2018 model-year Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans.

The recall comes after officials discovered that the cars have "potentially loose steering wheel bolts that could result in a steering wheel detaching from the steering column," Ford said in a statement.

The latest recall affects 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S., about 62,000 in Canada and 14,000 in Mexico.
