Defective Products: Ford Recall Affecting F-150s

A new day, a new Ford recall.  Ford’s most recent recall is said to affect around 1.2 million pick-up trucks that are currently being used in the United States and Canada.  The recall is in effect because of fears that certain Ford fuel tanks may fall off and in turn start vehicle fires.  Supposedly, the fear rests in the thought that the straps fastening the fuel tank on the truck can be easily corroded by road salt.  Thus far, the defect has caused around eight fires and one injury.

Ranking among the Ford versions affected by the recall, is one of America’s bestselling trucks, the F-150.  Other versions affected include the F-250 and Lincoln Blackwood trucks built between ’97 and ’04.  If you are a Ford owner, you will be contacted and advised to return to your dealer in order to have the vehicle’s straps replaced.

Manufacturer defects can be extremely dangerous if they are not tended to correctly.  If you or a loved one has been injured or even killed in an accident involving a defective product or defective vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation.  Discuss your potential case with a product recall attorney who specializes in product liability cases today.  Call us at 314.409.7060.
