Mazda North American Operations is recalling 268,799 Mazda CX-5 SUVs in the 2014-2016 model years so dealers can address a fire risk associated with the fuel filler pipe, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The CX-5 SUVs at issue were manufactured from June 27, 2013, to Feb. 2 of this year, NHTSA said. They have a fuel filler pipe that may rupture in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of a fire.

To resolve the problem, Mazda dealers will alter the attachment between the fuel filler pipe and the left rear side of the bracket of the fuel filler pipe. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin March 1. Vehicle owners can reach Mazda customer service at (800) 222-5500, option 6. Mazda’s number for this recall is 9216B.
