BEIJING — General Motors Co. and its main Chinese partner will recall 1.5 million cars to replace a bracket that secures a fuel pump, China’s product quality agency said Friday.

The agency said the recall affects 1.2 million Buick Excelles made from 2006 through part of 2012 and 250,000 Chevrolet Sails produced between April, 2009, and October, 2011, and some made last year.

The recall is GM’s second this year in China. In May, the government announced a recall of 2,653 imported Cadillac SRX sport utility vehicles to adjust nuts on wheels that it said might loosen because of torque.
