Additional information:

Among the ninety (90) recalls the NHTSA announced this past month came news of the following:

Logo - ECCO Safety GroupECCO Safety Group (“ECCO”), a Boise, ID establishment has recalled an estimated 761 model Code 3 branded 7×9 Stop-Tail-Turn Reverse All-in-One LED stop, tail, turn, and reverse lights sold primarily for use in emergency vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Exterior Lighting – Rear LED Lights too bright/FMVSS 108

NHTSA Safety Notification 20E041000 reports the emergency lights may be too bright, exceeding the maximum light output allowed which may adversely affect the vision of drivers. As such, these lamps fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

According to the NHTSA, the excessive brightness may affect the vision of other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash, MVA or other impact event with consequential injury and/or life-changing results.

ECCO will notify the emergency vehicle manufacturers that used the recalled Lights as original equipment and the customers who purchased the Lights as replacement equipment. The manufacturer has not yet finalized a recall remedy. The recall is expected to begin July 20, 2020. Owners may contact ECCO at 1-208-395-8023 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). No manufacturer’s designation was listed for this recall at press time.
