TOKYO (AP) – Toyota says it’s recalling 1.43 million vehicles for defective air bags and another 2.87 million vehicles for faulty fuel emissions controls.

Toyota says it has not received any reports of injuries or fatalities related to either recall.

Some 932,000 vehicles are involved in both recalls, so the total number of affected vehicles is 3.37 million.

Toyota says the air bag recall affects the Prius hybrid, Prius plug-in and Lexus CT200h, and is not related to the Takata air bag recall.

The fuel emission problem affects various Prius models, the Auris, Corolla, Zelas, Lucas and the Lexus CT200h and HS250h.
