Ford is recalling thousands of Ranger pickup trucks due to faulty airbags.

The company says airbags installed in 2004 through 2006 Rangers can explode with too much force and cause injuries.

The recall covers nearly 391,000 trucks in the United States and Canada.

The recall comes just days after the government announced that a South Carolina man was killed in Dec. when an inflator exploded.

Ford says it will send letters to owners about the recall starting late Feb.

Customers can find out if their trucks are included by going to Ford.Com and clicking on “safety recalls.”

Rangers were also recalled last year to replace the passenger air bag inflators
