It would be very unusual to have ALL 6 go bad at the same time. That would imply that you have a very odd electrical problem or voltage spike.
It is fairly common to have a single coil go bad, but usually one at a time and usually at higher mileage.
I have a 2002 Escape 3.0L V6 with 120,000 miles. I replaced the first coil over plug (COP) at about 75,000 miles. When the second one went out at about 110,000 miles, I just went ahead and replaced all 6, since you have to remove the intake manifold to get to the back COPs.
I also had to replace a couple COPs on my 1999 F150.
I haven't heard of a recall.
They can be a little pricey from the dealer or parts store. Many DIYers get the COPS thru Ebay. I did. $80 for 6 COPs and $10 for intake gaskets.

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure

This is a common problem on most Ford products since around 1998. The issues is mostly with the COP--Coil-On-Plug. Their individual coils for eack spark plug,vs. a single coil pack or distibutor and wire type system. Now the good part. With all of fords problems, ALL MFG's use this type system,Nice move.
The coil driver failure, shouldn't be a wide spread issue
Forget recalls?

You saw Nissan ,recall issues,back to 2004 thru 2008,once Toyota had the gas peddle issues. If it wasn't for Toyota,they were laying low. Everyone new there were problems. Same thing on Chevy Colorado,Etc

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure

to beds_borders

That sounds very familiar. Our 2005 Ford Escape just had about the same problem to the tune of a $2800 repair. Computer failure caused two iginition coils to fail and had to drive over the Continenetal Divide on 4 cylinders. The vehicle is only 5 years old. Happened about 3 weeks ago. Ford said there is no recall. I have a big problem with that.. Where is the "quality" they are trying to sell?

Ingnition coil b code is on how to change the coil

Do you have coil over each plug or is it a coil pack for all plugs. If each plugs has a coil, they have small screws to remove, pull the plug wire out after this. But if the coil pack, label each plug wire to keep them in order. the pack can be removed easily. It should have 4 screw, once those are out the coil pack will come off. Make sure after replacing it, you use di-electric grease on the bottom of the pack or in the coil over plug method. This keeps run-away spark and can cause mis-fire.
