A paving equipment company has announced a recall for improperly manufactured trucks.

Weiler is recalling certain model year 2002-2016 B2, B3, B5, F1, F3, F5, M100, M200, and WT4000 trucks. These trucks may have been produced with LED marker lights that do not have reflectors built into the lenses. This condition puts the vehicles in violation of the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Missing reflectors can reduce the visibility of the vehicle to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

Weiler is including nearly 400 vehicles in its recall.

The company will notify owners of the recalled trucks, and will supply reflective decals to be installed, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule for this recall.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Weiler customer service at (641) 828-6622.
