(CNN NEWSOURCE) Ford is recalling more than 270,000 pickups because of a possible brake issue.

The company says the recall is affecting some F-150 trucks built in 2013 and 2014.

Ford says they could have leaky brake master cylinders, which can affect their front brakes.

The problem can increase the risk of crashes.

Dealers will replace those cylinders and other parts for free.

Ford says it's aware of allegations that the problem led to at least nine accidents.

None of them, according to Ford, led to injuries.
