As of January 28, 2010, Toyota has announced recalls of approximately 5.2 million vehicles for the pedal entrapment and floor mat problem, and an additional 2.3 million vehicles for the accelerator pedal problem. Nearly 1.7 million vehicles are subject to both recalls. These defects have placed millions of Toyota drivers at risk for serious injury and death.
