Mercedes is recalling about one millions cars and SUVs worldwide, due to a fire risk.

The recall covers certain C-Class, E-Class and CLA cars and GLA and GLC SUVs, all from 2015 through to 2017.

They will be recalled due to a faulty starter part, which can overheat and has caused a reported 51 fires worldwide.

The defective fuse has not yet caused any injuries or deaths, according to Mercedes.

"Any affected vehicles in inventory will not be sold until they can be outfitted with the additional fuse," a Mercedes-Benz spokesman.

Customers in the United States will be notified of the recall this month, with no word yet on other countries.
