Floor Mats Recalled For Possible Gas Pedal Interference

A company that makes after-market floor mats for General Motors full-size pickup trucks and SUVs is recalling more than 45,000 of them because they can interfere with the gas pedal.

DETROIT (AP) — A company that makes after-market floor mats for General Motors full-size pickup trucks and SUVs is recalling more than 45,000 of them because they can interfere with the gas pedal.

Omix (AH-Mix) Ada of Suwannee, Georgia, says the recall covers Cabela's Custom Fit, Line-X Truck Gear, Rugged Ridge All-Terrain and Tread Lightly mats. They can move forward unintentionally and stop the gas pedal from returning to the idle position. That can increase the risk of a crash.

The mats fit Chevrolet and GMC trucks and SUVs from 1999 through 2014. The mats were made from Nov. 1, 2009 to Aug. 27, 2014. Most were sold at O'Reilly Auto Parts stores.

The company will furnish an anchor and hook system to fix the problem. People with questions can call (844) 642-7625.
