Ford recalls 547,538 Super Duty pickup trucks over potential fire hazard

Ford Motor Co. issued a safety recall Dec. 13 for more than 547,000 Super Duty SuperCrew pickup trucks for model years 2017-2019 with carpet flooring over the risk of a post-crash interior fire.

The front seat belt pre-tensioner, which pulls the seat belt tight in an accident, can cause excessive sparks during a crash, the automaker said in a news release. This could ignite the carpet or carpet insulation, and the fire could spread within the truck.

Ford said it is aware of one U.S. report of a fire-related to this issue, but the company is not aware of related injuries.

The recall affects 490,574 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 56,112 in Canada and 852 in Mexico. The pickup trucks were built at Ford's Kentucky truck plant October 2015-October 2019.

Dealers can apply foil tape to the carpet and carpet insulation, Ford said.
