German automaker BMW will recall over 156,000 cars in China over defects in their child seats, the country's quality watchdog said today.

Starting from September 1, the recall will involve more than 134,000 X3 models which were produced between November, 2010 and April, 2016 and over 22,000 X4 models produced between March, 2014 and April, 2016, a statement by the General Administration and Quality Supervision, Inspection and

Quarantine, said.

Welding problems were found in the lower anchors of the child seats which may prevent the seats from being secured properly and raise the possibility of passenger injuries during accidents, the administration said.

BMW China Automotive Trading Co Ltd will repair the anchors of the recalled cars for free, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
