The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Tuesday that Tesla is recalling and updating the software for 53,822 of its cars using the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta program because it may allow some models to conduct "rolling stops" at intersections, posing a safety risk.

Driving the news: The company said the update would disable the controversial feature, which allowed some cars to roll through intersections with stop signs instead of breaking completely.

  • Federal law requires automakers to submit a recall when they issue an "over-the-air" software update that mitigates a defect that poses an unreasonable risk to drivers.

What they're saying: Tesla said in its safety recall report that it was not aware of any warranty claims, field reports, crashes, injuries or fatalities related to the software bug as of Jan. 27.
