Tire repair material supplier Tech International Inc. is recalling certain replacement snap-in tire valve stems made between July 2006 and November 2006.

Model number TR413 valve stems are under recall, say officials from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), who made the recall public earlier today.

"The rubber portion of the valve stem may crack and permit the gradual loss of tire pressure. Continuing to drive on under-inflated tires could damage the tire, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash."

Tech will replace the defective valve stems free of charge. "Further, if a defective TR413 stem has caused structural damage to a tire, the tire will be replaced as necessary."

For more information, call Tech at (740) 967-9015.
