DETROIT -

Ford Motor Co. is recalling some of its 2012 Edge vehicles because of concerns that the fuel line could leak and potentially cause a fire.

The recall affects about 5,500 vehicles made between Sept. 2, 2010, and Oct. 31, 2011.The Edge is a midsized SUV, and the affected vehicles have 2-liter engines. The problem is caused by a part in the fuel line that could crack. If it did, the smell of gas would probably be noticeable, and fuel leaks might also appear. Those conditions could cause a fire under the hood.

Ford blamed faulty manufacturing by a parts supplier.

Ford will notify owners by mail with instructions to take their vehicle to a Ford or Lincoln dealer. If the vehicle needs to be fixed, the dealer will do the repair for free. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, Sept. 24.

Ford, based in Dearborn, Mich., said it is aware of 12 cases of fuel leaks after examining warranty claims. No accidents, injuries or fires have been reported.

Owners can also contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236 or www.safecar.gov.
