Nearly 2 million Ford F-150 pickup trucks are being recalled due to a seat belt defect that may pose a fire hazard.

So far, 23 incidents have been reports to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of Ford trucks smoking or catching on fire. Ford warns that when the front seat belt pretensioners are deployed that sparks may generate inadvertently causing a fire. There have been no injuries or deaths reported at this time.

The recall is being issued on 2015-2018 F-150 models built in Dearborn, MI and Kansas City. Over 1.6 million pickups in the U.S. alone are being recalled with nearly 2 million F-150’s potentially affected worldwide.
