Italian-American carmaker Chrysler Automobiles NV will recall 1,200 (SUVs) sold in India, for "replacement of the front passenger airbag," FCA India said in a statement on Thursday.

The recalls are part of a bigger recall by the company.

The carmaker on Wednesday recalled 7,000 U. S.-market and 1,000 vehicles sold in Canada and Mexico for the same reason.

During the airbag module assembly process, "loose fasteners may have inadvertently found their way undetected into a small number of modules," said in an emailed statement.

No injuries, accidents, warranty claims or complaints have been reported, the company said.
