US-Canada: 1700 Newer School Buses Recalled by Blue Bird
The Blue Bird school bus company is recalling 17-hundred of its buses in the U.S. and Canada to check for steering problems.
The recall affects Blue Bird's All-American model built between February tenth of 1999 and August 24th of this year.
The company reports because of a parts shortage, buses had temporary steering shafts installed and then removed. Company officials say some bolts may have been omitted when the permanent shafts were installed.
The Macon, Georgia-based company says no accidents or injuries have been reported on the affected buses.
Blue Bird says the recall affects buses in just about every state.
