Switching to ICE during acceleration

Ever since I brought my Volt into the dealership for the most recent recall my car has been abruptly switching to ICE during hard acceleration. I?ll try to start off slow from a red light but when it gets to about 60kw it randomly shuts off switches to the gas motor and creeps along at 20mph until it figures out that it has a full battery again. This process takes about 20 seconds and can be quite dangerous. The check engine light has not come on.

It sounds like something more serious to me - even if the ICE were to engage because the hood is open, it shouldn't creep along at 20 mph for 20 seconds. The ICE would just engage and you would keep driving normally. My car has never taken that long to switch over.
