Summary:
      Van-Con, Inc. "Van-Con" is recalling certain 2011-2018 33803 Dual Rear Wheel 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. The foam in the knee impact area of the lower seat back may not absorb enough impact in the event of a crash.

Consequence:
      If the seat foam does not absorb enough impact energy, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

      Van-Con is still finalizing a remedy plan. Van-Con issued owners an interim notification on September 18, 2018. Owners may contact Van-Con customer service at 1-732-356-8484.
