DEARBORN, Mich.Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 271,000 F-150 trucks, including close to 44,000 in Canada, due to concerns about their front brakes.

The automaker says the recall, which affects 2013 and 2014 models, is being issued to replace the brake master cylinders.

The company says in some cases, the effectiveness of the brakes can be reduced due to brake fluid leaking from the brake master cylinder into the brake booster, increasing the risk of a crash.

The brake fluid leak does not affect rear-wheel braking.

Affected vehicles include those equipped with 3.5-litre GTDI engines built at Ford's truck plant in Dearborn, Mich., from Aug. 1, 2013, until Aug. 22, 2014, and at its Kansas City, Mo., assembly plant from Aug. 1, 2013, through Aug. 31, 2014.

Ford says it is aware of allegations of nine accidents with no injuries, and one alleged injury in another case that did not stem from an accident.

Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder at no cost to the customer and will replace the brake booster if they find leaks from the brake master cylinder.
