Recall Summary: Collins Bus Corporation (Collins) is recalling certain model year 2015 DE516WR, SL408, SH40, and DH500 school buses manufactured February 2, 2015, to April 1, 2015. The affected vehicles have seat bottoms whose foam core may not meet the flammability requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 302, "Flammability of Interior Materials."
Hazard: If the seats are built with this seat bottom foam core, the seats may not resist catching fire in the presence of an ignition source, increasing the risk that a fire may start or spread.
Remedy: Collins will notify owners, and dealers will replace the school bus seat bottoms with foam that is compliant to the safety standard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact Collins customer service at 1-800-533-1850. Collins' number for this recall is 15E032.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
