I've never seen a cutaway of the Focus gastank, but I'm betting their isn't a baffle below the fuel pump to prevent this from happening.
It looks to me like the tank is fairly rectangular shaped. Also, the located the pump on the right hand side and not in the middle. Seems like a recipe for this problem.
