DEARBORN, Michigan Ford is recalling 82,576 vehicles for a problem with the driver's side all-weather Ford floor mat, including the 2006-'11 Ford Fusion sedan, the company said on Thursday.

The recall also includes the 2006-'11 Mercury Milan, Lincoln Zephyr and MKZ.

If improperly installed, the mats may come in contact with the accelerator pedal.

"We are aware of two accidents alleged to be associated with this condition, with no injuries," wrote Kelli Felker, a Ford spokeswoman, in response to a query from Edmunds on Thursday.

The mats may have been supplied with some of the cars or purchased by owners of these vehicles from a Ford or Lincoln dealer.

Owners will be asked to return the all-weather mats to their dealer in exchange for a new set of mats. The recall is expected to begin by the end of July. Owners can contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.

No information had been posted about the recall on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as of Friday morning.

The Ford floor-mat recall is part of a larger recall of nearly 1.4 million Ford vehicles announced on Thursday in separate actions throughout the day. The bulk of those recalled vehicles were 1.1 million cars with power-steering problems, including the 2008-'11 Ford Escape and 2011-'13 Ford Explorer.

Edmunds says: Ford said it will be sending notices to customers that either bought a car with the affected floor mats or may have purchased them at a dealership. But if you have any concerns in the meantime, get in touch with Ford customer service or your local dealer.
