Honda is recalling 886,815 Odyssey minivans in the country because a fuel pump cover can deteriorate and cause a fuel leak, the company announced Saturday.

In a March 13 filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Honda said 2005-2010 Odysseys built in Alabama have a fuel-pump part that could leak and cause a fire, Reuters reported.

Honda says no fires or injuries have been reported.

Replacement parts may not be available until this summer, but Honda dealers will replace the parts for free, the company said.

This is the third recall in less than a year involving the Odyssey.

In September, Honda recalled 318,000 2003 and 2004 Odysseys due to the risk that airbags could spontaneously deploy, Fox News reported.

In November, the car recalled 344,000 2007 and 2008 models because of a computer malfunction that could cause "heavy and unexpected braking."
