Forest River, Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain 2014-2016 Starcraft transit buses. The rear emergency exit window labels are not in the correct location and only provide instructions for one release mechanism, instead of two release mechanisms. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 217, "Bus Emergency Exits and Window Retention and Release."
In an emergency, the incorrect window label instructions may prevent or delay the use of the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.
Dealers will install new labels on the rear emergency exit windows, free of charge. Interim owner notification letters informing owners of the safety risk were mailed November 22, 2021. A second notice will be sent once the remedy is finalized. Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 1-800-348-7440. Forest River's number for this recall is 05-0169.
