Ford Motor Company has announced a recall for vans lacking proper safety features.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Transit vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the side curtain airbag may not deploy with the proper trajectory, due to being folded and packaged incorrectly.

A side curtain airbag that does not deploy as intended may increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.

More than 37,000 vehicles are subject to Ford's recall.

The company will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and re-orient the side curtain air bag assembly, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on May 16, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332.
