Ford Motor Company is recalling certain units of the 2015 Ford F-150 SuperCrew over an issue with the seat belt anchorage assemblies.

The problem: affected vehicles may be equipped with driver or front passenger seat belt anchorage assemblies whose pretensioner cable was not properly crimped. As a result, the seat belts may not properly restrain the seat occupant in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 209, “Seat Belt Assemblies” and 210, ” Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.”

The hazard: an occupant that is not properly restrained is at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
