Ride the Ducks International (RTDI) is recalling certain model year 1996-2005 "Stretch" Amphibious Passenger Vehicles.

Due to excessive fatigue, the axle housing on the affected vehicles may fracture at the connection point between the knuckle ball and the housing, possibly resulting in a loss of vehicle control.

A loss of vehicle control can increase the risk of a crash and passenger injury.

An estimated 57 vehicles are affected by this recall.

RTDI will notify the company-owned operators and licensors of the recalled Amphibious vehicles and will strengthen the connection at the knuckle housing ball and the axle housing, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule for this recall. For additional information, RTDI customer service can be reached at (417) 266-7600.
