Toyota says it will recall 7.43 million vehicles worldwide due to power window problem posing fire risk, automaker says.  

The recall includes certain Vitz, Yaris and Corolla models.

The firm will recall 2.47 million vehicles in the United States, as well as 1.4 million vehicles in China and 1.3 million vehicles in Europe, making it the biggest single recall since Ford pulled back 7.9 million vehicles in 1996.

The recall comes a day after Toyota reported its sales fell 48 percent year-on-year in China in September.
