Ford Motor Co. said Wednesday that it would recall 144,000 F-150 pickup trucks because front-seat airbags could inflate even though the vehicle hadn’t been involved in a collision.

The recall involves trucks built at Ford’s now-closed Norfolk, Va., factory from November 2004 to June 2005 and sold in the 2005 and 2006 model years. The automaker said it was aware of 238 incidents of inadvertent airbag deployment in the trucks, causing 77 injuries but no deaths.

“That includes cases that were confirmed to be related to the defect and other cases that were ambiguous and could not be ruled out being related to the issue,” said Wesley Sherwood III, a Ford spokesman.
