Toyota Tundra Accelerator Problem Recall

My 2008 Tundra is fine with the floor mats, no problems but now I hear this recall is for sticky gas pedal. Anyone here have this trouble?

    I've had my TUNDRA since Sept of 2008 and it barely has 10K miles on it.
    I noticed the pedal is more 'sluggish' than say, my Audi, but then again, I assumed that a humongous truck like that has some sort of governor on it because it is made for towing... etc.

    I noticed that when you lift off the gas on the downhil, it seems to be almost downshifting for you...

    In other words, you can't peel out and leave rubber with one of these tanks like you can on my Audi Quattro.

    I have not heard anything about the pedal recall but when I got the notice about the mat, I checked it and nothing seemed wrong. Perhaps they thought it was this at first and now see that it's not?

    What will they do to fix it?
