WASHINGTON -- Toyota says it will recall nearly 100,000 Sienna minivans from the 2011 model year to replace a switch bracket on the brake lamp.

The Japanese automaker says a driver's foot could hit the switch bracket and deform it while applying the parking brake pedal. Toyota says there have been no accidents or injuries related to this issue.

Toyota has recalled more than 10 million vehicles during the past year to address a number of problems, including faulty gas pedals, floor mats that can trap accelerators, defective braking and stalling engines.

The switch bracket is welded on to the left side of the brake pedal assembly. The brake lamp provides a signal to indicate that the brake pedal has been depressed and illuminates the brake lights.
