It seems like the news is full of safety recalls: Toys, cosmetics and even ice cream have all been in the mix. Recently, Volvo Trucks North America announced a recall for some of their VNM and VNL trucks equipped with Meritor FF967 non-drive front steer axles. The axles may fracture, “resulting in a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.” Still other trucks equipped with a Cummins ISX12 engine, “may experience an internal electric short that can cause a fuse to blow.”
For those who rely on these vehicles to provide for their families, it is important to stay up-to-date on recall information. To make sure you’re in the know, six federal agencies with vastly different jurisdictions have joined together to create www.recalls.gov — a one stop shop for U.S. Government recalls.
