"The rear seatbelt buckles are being damaged when heavy objects are placed on top of them, which could cause the buckle not to latch completely, increasing the risk of injury in a crash," Ford said in a statement.
There are no accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
The affected Transit Wagons were built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from February 13, 2014 through January 13, 2016.
No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment with their Ford dealer.
