WASHINGTON — Hyundai is recalling approximately 190,000 2011-'13 Hyundai Elantras in the U.S. because a defective headliner support bracket could lead to a laceration risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"A support bracket attached to the headliner may become displaced during a side curtain airbag deployment," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the headliner support bracket makes contact with an occupant during a crash, it may cause a laceration injury."

Hyundai told federal safety regulators it is aware of one injury connected with the recall. The injury resulted in a laceration to the driver's left ear following a collision.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from November 12, 2010 through March 5, 2013.

Hyundai dealers will apply adhesive strips to the headliner to correct the problem. The recall is expected to begin in May. Owners can contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Edmunds says: There is a wait with this recall, so if you have a concern it's best to contact Hyundai.
