Honda is recalling 900,000 Odyssey minivans following reports that second-row seats can tip forward.

All but 100,000 of the models from 2011-2017 were sold in the United States, company officials said Saturday .

Honda said it received 46 reports of injuries connected to the problem, which occurs when the seats aren't properly latched.

“If a second row seat is not properly latched after adjusting it side-to-side or reinstalling a removed seat, the seat may tip forward during moderate to heavy braking, increasing the risk of injury to an occupant,” the company statement said. “This issue will not occur if a seat is properly latched.”

Honda provides instructions on how to adjust and properly latch the seats: https://tinyurl.com/hondaodysseyseatlatch
