General Motors is recalling more than 473,000 SUVs and pickups—including Silverados, Sierras and Tahoes—because of potential brake problems, according to CBSDetroit.

The recall covers certain 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC Sierra HD and Chevrolet Tahoe police vehicles.

CBSDetroit reports:

According to GM, which has yet to submit recall notices with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the vehicles’ brake pedal pivot mechanism can come loose, causing the pedal to loosen, possibly becoming inoperable. So far, the company says it is unaware of any crashes or injuries resulting from the issue.

The Associated Press reports that dealers will inspect the pivot bolts and make needed fixes. Owners of affected vehicles will be noticed of the recall shortly.
