The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain 2021 Mallard M180BH recreational trailers. These units had incorrect axle, rims, and tires installed during production. The incorrect axles, rims and tires can cause the trailer to be overloaded, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 76 units are affected by this recall.
  • Paccar is recalling certain 2015-2021 Peterbilt 320 and 520 vehicles. The steering column support structure may crack or break in certain right-hand, stand-up drive models. If the steering column loosens from the mounting structure, steering control can become affected, increasing the risk of the crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,021 units are affected by this recall.
