INTERNATIONAL - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV will recall 862,520 gasoline-powered vehicles in the United States that do not meet US emissions standards, the Environmental Protection Agency said on Wednesday.
The recall, reported earlier by Reuters, was prompted by in-use emissions investigations conducted by the EPA and in-use testing conducted by Fiat Chrysler as required by US regulations, the agency said.
EPA told Reuters it will continue to investigate other Fiat Chrysler vehicles that are potentially non-compliant and may become the subject of future recalls.
The recall includes 2011-2016 Dodge Journeys, 2011-2014 Chrysler 200s and Dodge Avengers, 2011-2012 Dodge Calibers and 2011-2016 Jeep Compass/Patriots.
Fiat Chrysler did not immediately comment. Its US-traded shares were down 1.4 percent.
