Honda, and now Toyota, is recalling almost 2.17 million cars in US to adress issues related to defected accelerator pedals, that could become entrapped in floor mats or jammed in carpeting.

Toyota has recalled more than 14 million vehicles globally, that included fuel gauge, gas pedals and other brake issues, and has already been under pressure from many countries over such recalls, costing them billions already.

But whats interesting to note here is that, China is surprisingly not in this recall list. The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine met with Toyota executives based in China on Feb. 18 regarding the issue, but Toyota has yet to issue a formal response, the report cited administration spokesman Li Yuanping as saying. China has requested an explanation and "specific technology details" from Toyota Motor Corp. (7203.TO) about why the company's global recall of 1.7 million vehicles for quality problems doesn't include China, Xinhua News Agency reported Thursday, citing a spokesman for the country's quality watchdog.
