The Kyodo News Agency says the Prius recall will cover the latest version of the cars that went on sale in May last year.

Kyodo also says the automaker is likely to notify both the U.S. and Japanese governments Tuesday.
     
The agency says the recall will cover about 270,000 of the hybrids sold in the two countries: 170,000 in Japan and 100,000 in the U.S.

The agency didn't identify its source.
     
A top Toyota executive will appear before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Wednesday along with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration chief David Strickland.
