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

  • Altec Industries is recalling certain 2019-2021 ATTXX-M/P/S aerial devices. Bolts in the rotation bearing outer-race may have been over-tightened, allowing the bolts to break. Broken bolts can cause separation of the pedestal and turntable, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 454 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Altec Industries is recalling certain 2018-2021 DC and DM Series Digger Derricks and AM series Aerial Devices. The unit subbase may develop cracks in the bulkhead plate, which can cause the shear plates to fail. Shear plate failure can result in the separation of the subbase and truck frame, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 167 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Autocar is recalling certain 2020-2022 Legend vehicles. The grille bezel may be insufficiently attached, allowing it to detach from the vehicle. A detached grille bezel can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 132 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vehicles. The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) may be improperly stated on the tire and loading label. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 120, "Wheels and Rims-Other Than Passenger Cars." The operator may overload the vehicle, resulting in excessive tire wear and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,564 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain 2018-2022 Allegro and Allegro Breeze motorhomes. The buss bar may be improperly secured, which can cause electrical components in the DC Distribution Panel to overheat. Overheated electrical components can melt and increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 2,914 units are affected by the recall.
