(WJBK) -

General Motors is recalling more than 27,000 Cadillac SUVs around the globe because of concerns the wheels can fall off.

The automaker says the recall is for the 2013 Cadillac SRX equipped with 18-inch wheels. Safety regulators say the wheel nuts may not have been tightened enough at the factory.

GM says the problem has not caused any known crashes or injuries and no wheels have fallen off vehicles. Owners are being asked to bring their vehicles into their dealers where the tires will be rotated and the wheel nuts tightened at no cost.

The recall affects almost 19,000 SUVs in the U.S. and more than 900 in Canada. The remaining vehicles were exported to other countries.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
