Labrie Recalls 29 2008 Garbage Trucks

August 26, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Labrie Environmental Group is recalling 29 MY 2008 garbage and recycling trucks equipped with certain Haldex Quick Release Valves. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the rubber diaphragm inside the Quick Release Valves may experience de-lamination, resulting in significant levels of air pressure leakage past or through the diaphragm. Another potential problem could be the development of a bubble in the diaphragm, which may trap air pressure in the valve and not allow the service brakes to release. Malfunction of the air brake system poses a serious safety risk. 

Labrie will notify owners and replace the Quick Release Valves free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in September. 

Owners may contact Labrie at (877) 452-2743.
