General Motors Co [GM.UL] is recalling about 126,130 Hummer H3 models to address the risk that part of the hood could detach from the vehicle while driving.

GM said in a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that clips holding the hood louver on some of the vehicles could break, causing the part to break loose and strike a vehicle behind the Hummer in traffic.

The recall covers 2006 through 2010 model year Hummer H3 vehicles.
