Summary:
      Collins Bus Corporation "Collins" is recalling certain 2011-2018 Collins SL, SH, DH, DE, and TH school buses, built on Promaster chassis, equipped with CE White/HSM SB11-30" series, standard, unbelted, school bus seats, or 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."
Consequence:
      If the seat foam does not absorb enough impact energy, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
      Collins will notify owners, and dealers will install additional foam into the seat backs, free of charge. The recall began December 21, 2018. Owners may contact Collins customer service 1-800-533-1850, extension 424. Collins' number for this recall is 18e056.
