The trucks, including the top-selling F-150, are being recalled because straps that secure fuel tanks can corrode and allow the tanks to fall.
The defect has led to three fires and one injury in the US. The recall covers 1.1 million pickup trucks, including F-150s from model years 1997 to 2004; F-250s from model years 1997 to 1999; and Lincoln Blackwoods from model years 2002 to 2003.
No Australian vehicles are included in the notice.
Ford earlier this year recalled more than 1 million F-150s for defects that could prevent the airbags from deploying properly.
