General Motors is recalling more than 2,600 Cadillac SRX crossover vehicles in Canada because of a problem with the passenger side air bags.

A spokesman for the automaker confirmed the numbers, which are part of a broader recall of 47,000 Cadillac SRX crossovers in the United States.

The U.S. highway traffic safety administration posted documents on its website saying that the right side head protection air bag won’t inflate in a crash if no one is in the front seat. As a result, a right-side passenger in the back seat may not be protected, and could get hurt in a front or side crash, the agency said in the documents.

GM said no injuries have been reported.
