The U.S. Government is investigating LG Energy Solution of South Korea after vehicle batteries manufactured by the company have been the subject of recalls.

NYPost.com reports that at least five vehicle manufacturers have issued recalls for automobiles manufactured with LG batteries, as they may have defects that can cause the vehicles to stall or even catch fire.

According to the report, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating nearly 140,000 vehicles manufactured with LG batteries. The NHTSA is concerned that the batteries were manufactured with a defect that could cause the battery cells to ignite. Hyundai and KIA have recently issued recalls for a similar defect.

The manufacturers that have issued recalls for the LG batteries include General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, Stellantis and Volkswagen.
