Toyota issues its largest recall

DETROIT — Toyota issued the largest recall in its 75-year history Wednesday, a move that could undermine the carmaker’s comeback from natural disasters and embarrassing safety problems.

The company recalled 7.43 million cars, trucks, and sport utility vehicles worldwide to fix faulty power window switches that can cause fires. The recall affects more than a dozen models produced from 2005 through 2010 around the world including the Camry, the top-selling car in the United States. It affects more vehicles than the 7 million vehicles recalled two years ago for floor mats that can trap accelerator pedals and cause unintended acceleration.
