TOKYO (AP) - Toyota says it is recalling about 437,000 Prius and other hybrid vehicles worldwide to fix brake problems. It's the latest in a string of embarrassing safety problems at the world's largest automaker.

Company President Akio Toyoda made the recall announcement Tuesday afternoon at a press conference.

Toyoda says safety for customers is "our foremost priority."

Tuesday's recall affects models that went on sale last year.

There have been about 200 complaints in Japan and the U.S. about a
delay when the brakes were pressed in some conditions.
