Feds investigate trapped gas pedals in Ford models

Federal safety regulators are looking intoreports of gas pedals that become stuck under floor mats of 2010Ford Fusions and Mercury Milans.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it hasreceived only three complaints of gas pedals getting trapped underunsecured all weather floor mats. There are no reports of injuriesor crashes.

But it is similar to the problem that led Toyota to recallseveral million vehicles last fall.

Safety officials say the investigation covers about 250,000Fusions and Milans.
