A House Democrat is expressing concern about a massive Toyota recall that has led the automaker to stop manufacturing and selling vehicles linked to problems with gas pedals.

Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak, who leads an investigative subcommittee, says his staff will meet with Toyota on Wednesday. Stupak says "we want to find out what Toyota knows" about the problem with sudden acceleration and what the company will do to protect consumers.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told WGN Radio in Chicago that the government pressed the company to stop building vehicles linked to the massive recall. LaHood said "the reason Toyota decided to do the recall and to stop manufacturing was because we asked them to."
