Chicago: Ford Motor Co. is recalling 19,106 2013 Fusion sedans in the US to replace faulty headlamps, a newspaper quoted federal safety officials as saying.

Ford said in documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the headlamps on the 2013 model to be recalled could become hazy and dimmer over time, which could increase the risk of a crash, reported a news agency.

The US automaker also said that there are no known reports of accidents or injuries because of the problem as of November 9.

This is the second time in just two weeks for Ford to recall the redesigned 2013 Fusion, which went on sale in the US market in late September.

Last week, the 2013 model was recalled to correct a potential defect that could cause engine fire.
