The accessory seat cover kit may not be installed correctly causing the seat covers not to tear as designed in the event of an airbag deployment.
As a result, the cover could prevent the seat-mounted side airbag from deploying properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The Toyota Prius models affected by this recall were manufactured between 2014 and 2019.
