engine hesistation under acceleration

My 2007 Focus has recently started hesitating under heavy acceleration when it gets to about 60-70 MPH. It is pretty subtle and has happened only twice. My wife's 2007 Freestyle had something similar and I solved it by taking off the throttle body and cleaning it.

Has anyone had something similar happen with their focus and what did you do to fix it?

I had it in the dealer for service and they could not replicate the issue and would not give any advice on what it could be.

Thanks in advance!

How many miles? Could it be a coil or plug? Does it do it going up hills when you aren't accelerating as hard?
