      Corp. Micro Bird Inc. "Micro Bird" is recalling certain 2011-2018 Micro Bird G5, MB-II, and T-series school buses, equipped with CE White/HSM SB11-30" series, standard, unbelted, school bus seats, or SB11-30" series school bus seats with lap belts only.

      If the seat foam does not absorb enough impact energy, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
      Micro Bird will notify owners and dealers will insert an additional piece of expanded polystyrene "EPS" foam into the seatback, free of charge. Micro Bird issued interim notifications to owners on September 12, 2018. The recall began December 7, 2018. Owners may contact Micro Bird customer service at 1-819-477-2012.
