The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a recall of 19,600 Volvo C70 and S60 sedans today. The agency says certain models of those Volvo cars have mislabeled spare tires, a violation of federal safety standards.

According to the NHTSA, the optional spare tire kits in the C70 and S60 sedans contain tires printed with the wrong inflation pressure information. An improperly inflated tire increases the risk of failure of the emergency tire and possibly cause a crash, warns the agency.

The recall affects 2006-2012 Volvo C70 cars made from November 2005 through July 2011 and 2011-2012 Volvo S60 sedans made from July 2010 through April 2011.

Volvo hasn't yet begun notifying owners affected by this recall, which the company identifies as Safety Recall Number R247.

Consumers with questions can contact Volvo Customer Care (800-458-1552) or visit the NHTSA's website:

Recall: 2006-2012 Volvo C70 and 2011-2012 Volvo S60 - Campaign ID #: 11V508000 [NHTSA]
