Blue Bird Body Company is recalling an estimated 19,702 model year 2015-2016 Vision school buses equipped with a frame mounted battery box.

The support brackets for these battery boxes may crack, causing the battery box to separate from the chassis. If this separation occurs, the battery box could become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

Blue Bird says that the remedy for this recall is still under development. Owners of the recalled school buses will be notified by the company beginning on March 14, 2017.
