01 Sep GM Recall Chevrolet Camaro
Choosing the incorrect Label Supplier cost GM Motors Millions
Choosing the incorrect label supplier can be detrimental to your Business and reputation. GM recently felt the full force of this when they were forced to recall almost 19,000 vehicles due to label adhesion issues.
GM had to recall 18,941 Camaro models in the USA due to the air bag warning label on the sun visor peeling. The adhesive failed to adhere correctly to the material the sun visor was manufactured from, resulting in the label peeling off. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration these vehicles fail to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208 ‘Occupant Crash Protection’. If the airbag warning label detaches from the visor, the driver and front seat passenger may not be warned of the risks of airbag deployment. This increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
