Washington (AP) — South Korean car maker Hyundai Is recalling 239,000 cars because seatbelt parts can explode and injure occupants.

A total of three injuries have been reported, two in the United States and one in Singapore.

Government regulators have said that driver and passenger seatbelt pretensioners, which fasten belts in case of a collision, can explode during deployment and send shrapnel throughout the vehicle.

The recalls have been expanded to replace the previous three recalls and include the 2019-2022 Accent, 2021-2023 Elantras and 2021-2022 Elantra HEVs.

Car owners can take their car to the dealer and have the pretensioner put on the cap for free.
