Indiana Mills and Manufacturing Inc. (IMMI) is recalling certain Generation IV School Bus seats, part number 911698. These seats, equipped with 3-point lap and shoulder belts, have a buckle mount rod that may fracture under load. As such, these seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 210, Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.
Indiana Mills and Manufacturing Inc. (IMMI) has determined that certain seat belt assemblies manufactured from August 2, 2013, through October 31, 2013, fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, Seat Belt Assemblies. When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, and it may take more effort than specified in the standard to separate the latch plate from the buckle.
