Blue Bird Recalls School Buses with Seat Bottoms That May Pose Fire Risk
Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain model year 2016 Vision and All American rear engine school buses that were manufactured between February 11, 2015 and April 2, 2015.
The affected school buses have seat bottoms whose foam core may not meet the flammability requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 302, "Flammability of Interior Materials."
If the seats are built with this seat bottom foam core, the seats may not resist catching fire in the presence of an ignition source, increasing the risk that a fire may start or spread.
Blue Bird will notify owners of the recalled Vision and All American school buses, and dealers will replace the noncompliant seat bottoms with foam that meets the requirements of the safety standard. This repair service will be provided free of charge.
For further information on this recall, contact Blue Bird customer service at 1-478-822-2242.
Blue Bird's reference number for this recall is R15YD-SB.
