Spiders have forced Mazda to recall 42,000 vehicles.

The major automaker said spiders may build webs in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack, which can then lead to an increased risk of a fire.

The recall affected 2010 to 2012 Mazda-6 vehicles equipped with two-and-a-half liter engines.

Mazda said it will notify owners, and dealers will fix the problem at no charge.

This marked the second time in three years Mazda has issued a recall because of spiders.

Mazda said no injuries or incidents have been reported.
