General Motors is recalling about 50,000 large crossover SUVs to fix a windshield wiper problem.

The recall affects 2011 and 2012 Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia vehicles registered in 28 cold-weather states and Washington, D.C.

Federal safety regulators say ice and snow can build up and restrict movement of the wipers. That can make the wiper arm come loose and malfunction.

GM says dealers will fasten the wipers tighter than factory specifications to stop the problem from happening. The company says the loss of wipers hasn't caused any crashes or injuries.

GM will send letters to owners and start the recall later this month.
