Toyota Motor Corp. has issued a worldwide recall for 1.3 million Toyota Yaris subcompact sedans and hatchbacks due to a safety belt defect. 134,900 '06 and '07 U.S. models are affected. The Yarisis (Yari?) contain seatbelts that, in the event of a severe frontal collision, could cause a foam pad in the vehicle to ignite.

Toyota is working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to alert owners and perform necessary repairs. Toyota's Brian R. Lyons says Yaris owners will be receiving letters regarding the recall next week, at which point they can take the cars to their local dealer for the free, hour-long repair.

According to Toyota, no incidents have been reported.
