Renegade fuel pump recall?

I have a 2017 renegade latitude 4x4 with the 2.4, I’ve read up on the fuel pump recall the 2x4 flex fuel renegades have and I have the identical symptoms. I’m just curious has anyone else experienced stalling issues in 4x4 renegades particularly in high ambient temps? Here is what the recall states

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Jeep Renegade 4X2 flex fuel/E85 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine. In certain operating conditions such as high power demand in conjunction with high altitude and/or high ambient temperatures, a manufacturing error in the fuel pump assembly may result in a loss of fuel pressure.
A loss of fuel pressure can cause a stall, increasing the risk of a crash

I’m looking for any information why this happens, have they disclosed why it’s only the flex fuel models in the recall? This has happened to me a handful of times it stalls out you have to shift back to park and restart the car, doesn’t sound too bad except it usually happens when trying to merge onto the highway from a stop sign.
