Ford has announced a recall for trucks with potentially compromised brakes.

The auto manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 F-650 and F-750 trucks. The clip that connects the hand operated parking brake actuator cable to the intermediate parking brake cable may fail.

If the parking brake cable connector clip fails, the vehicle may unexpectedly roll, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is including about 4,700 trucks in its recall.

The company will notify owners, and dealers will replace the parking brake cable connector clip, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 16, 2016.

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