(NBC NEWSCHANNEL) Hyundai is recalling nearly a million cars in the U-S because the front seat belts could detach in a crash.

The recall covers Sonata midsize sedans from model years 2011 through 2014, as well as the Sonata hybrid from model years 2011 through 2015.

In government documents, Hyundai says a fastener belt anchor may not have been fully latched during assembly.

That can cause the belts to detach and fail to hold an occupant.

The automaker says it's aware of one minor injury related to the problem.

Dealers will inspect the seat belt anchor system and repair it if needed.
