There's more recall news afoot, and this time it's General Motors in the news.

The company has recalled 243,043 of its Lambda crossovers--Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook--due to possible damage that could occur to the second-row seat belts when the seats are folded. The damage could cause the seat belt to feel like it's latched when it actually isn't.

That's an obvious problem, and the recall covers 2009 and 2010 models. 207,000 of which were sold in the U.S. The rest were sold in Canada, Mexico, China, and Saudi Arabia.

A plastic shield around the release button for the latch could get caught on the seat frame, thereby accidentally hitting the release button if the seat is returned to the upright position with too much force.

Owners will be notified by mail this month. The fix involves trimming the shield so it doesn't hit the release button.

GM found the problem through warranty data, and the company says that it is not aware of anyone being hurt by a seatbelt that failed to latch during an accident due to the problem.
