Bridgestone/Firestone awaits possible fed decision on recall

Order Reprints

Government officials may ask Bridgestone/Firestone (BFS) Inc. to recall more tires, according to a report in USA Today.

"The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) told Congress at (last month's) hearings they had expected to reach a decision within 30 days," says a BFS spokesperson. "We're at the 30-day mark. There has not been any final decision or final recommendation."

However, BFS believes a decision "is imminent" but says USA Today's account may not be entirely accurate.

Meanwhile, the tiremaker continues to share tire data with NHTSA and will meet with the organization again next week.
