Ford is recalling 150,000 F-150 pickup trucks because the air bags may deploy unexpectedly. The recall involves 2005-2006 models.

The company says there is a relatively low risk of the bags going off, however a defect in the steering wheel assembly may chafe the bag wiring.

According to USA Today, this may be just the beginning. It says, "the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration started looking into thisissue in 2009 and that it had dozens of injury reports and that the recall should cover 1.3 million 204 to 2006 trucks."

Thousands of cars are recalled every day. You can always go here to check to see if your car is part of a recall.
