General Motors is recalling about 1.46 million cars in China amid concerns about their potential safety.

In one of the biggest operations of its kind to date in China, GM and Shanghai General Motors will recall their Buick and Chevrolet models.

A watchdog agency said the cars could have issues with a bracket securing the fuel oil pump.

At the same time, the BBC reports Ford will recall up to 81,000 of its Kuga cars over concerns about a steering part.

Volkswagen's Chinese unit recalled 640,309 vehicles last month to check they were using the right oil.
