Jaguar Land Rover has announced that it is recalling sedans due to a defective fuel system.

The company is recalling certain model year 2010 Jaguar XF vehicles. The affected vehicles have a fuel tank with an outlet flange that may crack, allowing fuel to leak onto the ground.

A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire and poses an injury hazard to users and passengers.

The manufacturer is including about 30 vehicles in its recall.

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel outlet mounting flange, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 20, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Jaguar customer service at (800) 452-4827.
