Not long after finalizing the transition of its work truck manufacturing from Mexico to the U.S., Ford has announced a recall on certain F-650 and F-750 trucks for a seat belt issue.

The recall applies to approximately 26,400 2011-2013 and 2015 model year F-650 and F-750 trucks sold in North America. Ford says the seat belts in these trucks might not be anchored in the correct position and could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

Ford says it is not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by the defect. The automaker is still in the process of developing a service fix for the issue.

The trucks were built at Ford’s former work truck assembly plant in Escobedo, Mexico, between February 14, 2011 and April 28, 2015.

As of August 12, Ford work trucks are manufactured in Avon Lake, Ohio.
