Description Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain 2013-2019 Starcraft Bus Prodigy, 2010-2019 Starcraft Bus Quest, 2019 Starcraft Bus Senator II, Quest XL and StarTrans Bus MFSAB 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."
Consequences If the seat foam does not absorb enough impact energy, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Corrective action Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will insert an additional piece of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam into the lower seatback area, free of charge. The recall began November 1, 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-3112. Forest River's number for this recall is 05-0886.
