Toyota Recalls 437,000 Prius

TOKYO (AP) - Toyota says it is recalling about 437,000 Prius and
other hybrid vehicles worldwide to fix brake problems- the latest
in a string of embarrassing safety problems at the world's largest
automaker.

Company President Akio Toyoda made the recall announcement
Tuesday afternoon at a press conference.

Toyoda says safety for customers is "our foremost priority."

Tuesday's recall affects models that went on sale last year.
There have been about 200 complaints in Japan and the U.S. about a delay when the brakes were pressed in some conditions.

It's the latest in a string of embarrassing safety problems at
the world's largest automaker.
