      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. 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."
      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.
