DETROIT (AP) — Ford says it’s recalling about 38,000 Transit vans in the U.S. and Canada because the side curtain air bags may not protect people properly in a crash.

The recall covers low-roof Transit vans from the 2015 and 2016 model years. The company says the bags on either side of the vans may have been folded incorrectly. They may not inflate at the proper angles to protect drivers or passengers. Ford says no crashes or injuries have been reported.

The affected vans were built from March 12, 2014 through March 18, 2016.

Dealers will inspect the air bags and adjust them if needed at no cost to owners.
