Ford Motor Company (F) Monday issued a safety recall for select 2016-19 Ford Explorer vehicles for roof rail covers. The Michigan-based global company noted that the roof rail covers might get detached from the vehicle while driving and create a hazard for others on the road.

This action affects 620,483 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 36,419 in Canada, and 4,260 in Mexico.
