Ford says it knows of one fire related to the flaw, but no accidents or injuries. The recall covers certain 2017-2019 model year trucks and follows a recall of F-150s due to the same problem. The F-150 and F-Series Super Duty trucks share the same body structure and many components.

Ford said 490,574 Super Duty trucks in the U.S. and 56,112 in Canada are affected.
