Honda Motor Co. announced it will recall 777,000 vehicles sold in the United States and Canada to fix an air bag problem.

The automaker said Friday it will inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver’s side airbag on its 2009-2013 models of the Pilot sport utility vehicle and the 2011-2013 models of the Odyssey minivan. The affected vehicles were assembled without some of the rivets used to secure the plastic covers on the air bags, Honda said.

No accidents or injuries related to the faulty air bags have been reported, and none of the vehicles subject to the recall were sold in Japan, the company added.
