General Motors expanded a U.S. safety recall from November to include about 160,000 additional vehicles, the company said Tuesday, citing possible issues with those car's low-beam headlights.

The wider recall now involves the 2005 model year Buick Lacrosse and 2007 model year Pontiac Grand Prix, according to Reuters.

GM was unable to confirm any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to the headlamps, which it said could be intermittently or permanently loose.

The company is also recalling 21,000 of the cars that were sold in Canada, including the Buick Allure, which is the name for the LaCrosse in that country, according to The Detroit News.
