    Car manufacturing giant Toyota is the latest company to order the recall of some of its units due to some defects.

    According to reports, Toyota ordered back to its factories, 550,000 cars around the world due to some steering problems. Based on the data released by Toyota corporation, 447,000 vehicles in North America along with 38,000 in Japan and another 25,000 in Australia and New Zealand are set to return to the main factory of Toyota in Japan.

    Corbett added luckily, no one was reported injured or killed due to the steering defect. The latest report, came after the company recently revealed that its July-September profit has lowered down to 18.5 percent to 80.4 billion yen ($1 billion) on plunging sales caused by parts shortages from the tsunami disaster in northeastern Japan.

    Moreover, the company said the latest recall is due to the possibility that the outer ring of the engine’s crankshaft pulley may become misaligned with the inner ring, causing noise or a warning signal to light up, the company’s U.S. sales unit. Toyota was founded by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937 as a spin-off from his father’s company Toyota Industries to create automobiles.
