Ford Motor Company is recalling about 1,300 model year 2021 F-650s and F-750s with a 7.3-liter engine.

The vehicles were built without certain thermal protection components intended to reduce the interior cabin floor and seat attachment temperatures, according to ConsumerAffairs.

Report further indicates that these missing components may include an underbody heat shield, a thermal insulator patch under the floor mat, or covers for the seat bolts and seat pedestal.

In vehicles without these components, the interior cabin floor and seat attachments could reach elevated temperatures during certain high-load, high ambient temperature driving conditions.

Continuous skin contact with elevated temperatures may lead to skin irritation or a minor burn.

Yet, it was learnt that there are no reports of accidents or injuries.

On rectifying the error, Ford will notify owners, and dealers will install the underbody heat shield, thermal insulator patch under the floor mat, seat base covers and seat bolt covers.

Affected vehicle owners may contact Ford Customer Service on (866) 436-7332, and Ford’s reference number for this recall is 20S36.
