electric vehicle start-up Rivian Automotive Inc. is recalling 502 battery-powered pickup trucks due to potentially defective airbags that could endanger the safety of a child in the passenger seat.

Rivian said in a filing with the U.S. Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Tuesday that it had discovered that a calibration error in the seat assembly could cause the front airbags to malfunction in the event of a crash.
