The Ford Motor Company has issued a massive safety recall for nearly 2 million trucks after smoke or fire caused by seatbelts.

The company says select 2015-18 Ford F-150 Regular Cab and SuperCrew Cab vehicles are included in the recall.

According to the recall, some front seat belt pretensioners, which tightens the slack in the belt, can generate excessive sparks when they deploy, which may cause a fire.

Ford says there have been six reports of this happening in Canada and 17 in the United States.

The vehicles are:

  • 2015-18 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, March 12, 2014 through Aug. 23, 2018
  • 2015-18 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Aug. 20, 2014 through Aug. 23, 2018

There are 339,884 of the vehicles in Canada, 1,619,112 in the U.S. and 36,780 in Mexico.

Ford says all repairs to the vehicles included in the recall will be done at dealerships at no cost to customers.
