Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling about 803,000 sedans, mostly its Camry, in the United States from 2012 and 2013 due to potential problems with air conditioning condensers, the company said on Thursday.

Across the world, the Toyota recall involves about 885,000 Camry, Avalon and Venza sedans, including 44,000 in Canada, 10,600 in Mexico, 9,100 in Saudi Arabia and the rest scattered among 15 countries, according to Reuters.

Toyota said water from the condenser can leak onto the airbag control module, which could cause the airbag to inflate and deploy at the wrong time. Also, power steering may be affected by a leaky condenser in Toyota vehicles.

Toyota said the issue has led to two "minor" injuries and no accidents.

Toyota owners will be notified about the recall starting next month. Toyota dealers will repair the problem for free.

In July, Toyota recalled 185,000 Yaris models made between November 2010 and March 2012 due to a power steering glitch.

More recently, last month, Toyota recalled 780,000 hybrid sedans for a second time to repair a suspension defect that was not properly fixed last year. The recall affected 2006 through 2011 RAV4 crossover and the 2010 Lexus HS250 hybrid sedan in August 2012.
