Germany’s KBA automotive regulator has asked Volkswagen’s Porsche sports car division to recall about 60,000 diesel-engined Cayenne and Macan sport utility vehicles.

The recall came after inspections revealed that the SUVs contain software designed to reduce the emissions controls for nitrogen oxide, a compound that when inhaled can cause or worsen respiratory ailments, according to the EPA.
