Airstream Incorporated has announced a voluntary recall at the request of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for 12 of its model year 2012 through 2013 International Eddie Bauer Travel Trailers due to a mislabeling. Certian units of these International Eddie Bauer Travel Trailers have been distributed with component information labels that provide incorrect sizing information for the trailers tires and rims, causing these vehicles to violate federal safety guidelines regarding tire and rim information. Following the incorrect information printed on the label affixed to these vehicles might result in an incorrect tire being installed on the trailer, increasing the chances that it might be involved in an accident that could lead to severe injuries or death. Consumers with questions about this recall can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline and inquire after NHSTA campaign identification number 12V184000. Airstream Incorporated has announced plans to send the owners of affected trailers labels containing the correct size and air pressure inflation guidelines for the trailer’s tires and rims, along with instructions on how to attach the new label to the vehicle.
As a San Jose personal injury attorney, I am hopeful that this recall will be carried out successfully in order to prevent anyone from being harmed by this potential defect. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, please consider contacting a car accident lawyer in San Jose.
