According to the article, FCA has reported a software error that can cause the vehicles to continue to use the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) setting or even accelerate even if the driver taps the brake pedal. FCA is apparently unaware of any incidents or injuries due to the issue.  Apparently, owners who experience the issue can still turn of the ACC by stepping on the brakes for a longer period of time.
