Additional information:

Among the 40 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Hickory Springs Manufacturing Company (“HSM”) has recalled an estimated 23,286 CE White SB11-30″ series, standard, un-belted School Bus Seats, and SB11-30″ series School Bus Seats with lap belts only. The foam in the knee impact area of the lower seat back may not absorb enough impact in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 222, “School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, if the seat foam does not absorb enough impact energy, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

HSM will notify the bus manufacturers that purchased the seats, and dealers for those manufacturers will insert an additional piece of expanded polystyrene (“EPS”) foam into the seatback, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact HSM customer service at 1-419-492-2157, extension 243.
