Mack Trucks, Inc. is recalling approximately 5,200 model year 2013-2014 CHU, CXU, GU, MRU, and LEU trucks equipped with drum brakes.

The clevis pin for the brake slack adjuster may be missing a cotter pin. If the cotter pin is not installed, the clevis pin may loosen and fall out causing a loss of brake function on the affected wheel.

A loss of brake function at one wheel will lead to increased stopping distances and pulling to the left or right when braking, which may increase the risk of a crash.

The Mack Trucks included in this recall were manufactured from July 16, 2012 through march 18, 2013.

Owners of the recalled vehicles will be notified directly by Mack Trucks, and dealers will inspect the brake slack adjusters and install the brake hardware, as necessary, free of charge.

For more information, contact Mack Trucks toll-free at 800-528-6586. Mack Trucks' campaign ID number for this recall is SC0370.
