WASHINGTON — Rolls-Royce is recalling 27 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantoms because they may be missing the anti-misfueling device in the fuel filler neck, which could increase the risk of fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The devices prevent misfueling and discharge static electricity," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Without the anti-misfueling device, there is an increased risk of fire from static electricity."

The affected cars were built from November 2, 2012 to January 18, 2013. Rolls-Royce said it became aware of the problem through its internal quality control processes.

Rolls-Royce told federal safety regulators that it has not received any reports of accidents or injuries related to the recall.

The recall is underway. Dealers will replace any affected fuel filler necks. Owners can contact Rolls-Royce at 1-877-877-3735.

Edmunds says: Rolls-Royce says only a few cars are in the hands of customers and they all should have been contacted about the recall by now.
