Certain 2016 model year Avalon and Camry cars were voluntarily recalled because of risk of injury to front seat passengers, Toyota Motors said Wednesday.

The front passenger airbag and knee airbag may not deploy as designed in a crash in certain conditions, the company said in a statement.

The recall involves airbags which are activated by a passenger's weight through an Occupant Classification System, or OCS, Toyota said. There's a possibility that the recalled vehicles might not have received proper calibration during manufacturing, the company said.

More than 16,800 2016 model year Avalons and 41,630 model year 2016 Camry sedans were included. Owners will be notified by first class mail, and can go to Toyota dealers to re-calibrate the OCS.
