Ford recalls charging cords over fire risk

Ford is recalling the charging cords for more than 50,000 plug-in hybrid and electric cars in North America, including 1,327 in Canada, because they could cause fires in electrical outlets.

The company says the 120-volt cords came with certain 2012 through 2015 Focus electrics and some 2013 through 2015 Fusion Energi and C-Max Energi plug-in hybrids.

Ford says plugging the cords into outlets that aren’t on a dedicated circuit or on damaged, worn or corroded circuits could cause wall outlets to overheat.

Owners will be notified by letters starting next week.
