NHTSA warns 2010 Ford Fusion and Milan owners

Posted: Updated:

CNN - Federal safety officials are warning owners of 2010 Ford Fusion and Milan sedans of possible dangers from the floor mats on the driver's side.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration received three complaints of accelerator pedals getting stuck on all-weather floor mats.

NHTSA officials say the problem occurs when the all-weather mats are stacked on top of the vehicles' standard floor mats.

Owners are being told to use the all-weather mats on the driver's side only after the standard mat is removed.

The problem has not caused any crashes, injuries or deaths.

Toyota recalled about 5 million vehicles because of similar problems with floor mats causing the gas pedal to stick.
