Mercedes-Benz is recalling more than 147,000 sedans and wagons in the United States because of a possible fire risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

A week after a similar Mercedes recall of 127,000 cars in China, the company said it needed to fix poorly secured rubber seals on the engines of 2013-2015 E-Class and CLS vehicles.

The seals could catch fire if the come loose and make contact with hot parts of the exhaust system, the company said.
