Blue Bird is recalling model year 2013 All American and Vision school buses manufactured from April 30, 2012, through June 23, 2012. Driver's seat belts may have been inadvertently installed with mismatched buckles which fails to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." The latch plate "tongue" on one style buckle may mate up to another style buckle receiver, but the latch plate may not be properly engaged.
Should this condition occur, the seat occupant may not be properly restrained and could be injured in an accident or sudden stop.
Blue Bird will notify owners, and dealers will repair the buses free of charge. The safety recall began on August 23, 2012. Owners may contact Blue Bird at 1-478-822-2242.
