A Toyota distributor has announced a recall for vehicles with incorrect labels.

Southeast Toyota Distributors (SET) is recalling certain model year 2016 Toyota Yaris, Rav4, Land Cruiser and 4Runner vehicles, and Scion FR-S, iM, and TC vehicles. The Load Carrying Capacity Modification Label may not reflect the correct added weight of the installed accessories. As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."

An incorrect label may result in the vehicle being overloaded, increasing the risk of a crash.

The distributor is including about 100 vehicles in its recall.

SET will notify owners, and provide them a corrected label to be installed over the inaccurate label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 3, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact SET customer service at (866) 405-4226.
